The Delhi BJP had filed a complaint with the Chief Electoral Office, seeking action against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for violating the Model Code of Conduct (MCC). The BJP party claimed that the AAP leaders, including Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, had burned copies of its 2014 manifesto to attack BJP on the issue of full statehood to Delhi. The AAP leaders violated the Model Code of Conduct by either not seeking permission for such events from the Election Commission, or they had sought permission for election meetings from the Election Commission and had misused this permission to violate the Model Code of Conduct by burning BJP’s manifesto.

Whereas the Election Commission of India issued a showcause notice to BJP leader and Union Minister Babul Supriyo for violating Model Code of Conduct. The notice is related to a campaign song, which Babul Supriyo allegedly promoted on electronic media and social sites without a media certification and permission from the Election Commission.

The Election Commission was keeping a close check on media to see if any such acts are done by any party when they came to know of the election campaign song of Babul Supriyo. The All India Trinamool Congress had also registered a complaint against the song. Though Babul Supriyo claimed that he had not created the music video, rather media houses had created it during the recording of the song. Now, the song will be sent to the media certification department for certification and will be released in a proper manner by the BJP party.
