8 Arrested Over “Offensive Banners” Against PM In Gujarat’s Ahmedabad

The arrests come just a day after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) launched a nationwide poster campaign against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Ahmedabad: Eight people have been arrested for putting “Modi Hatao, Desh Bachao” banners in various areas of Ahmedabad. The captures come simply a day after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) sent off a cross country banner mission against State leader Narendra Modi.
As per the Ahmedabad Police, a case has been enrolled and further test into the matter is in progress.

The Ahmedabad Police said “frightful banners” banners were set up in different pieces of the city in an “unapproved way”.

Gujarat AAP chief Isudan Gadhvi said the individuals who were captured are party laborers. Mr Gadhvi blamed the BJP for “tyranny” and guaranteed that the captures are an indication that the party is “frightened”.

Check out at the autocracy of BJP! Aam Aadmi Party laborers in Gujarat have been imprisoned under different segments of the IPC regarding the banners of Modi hatao desh bachao! On the off chance that this isn’t dread of Modi and BJP, then, at that point, what else? Make a good attempt as you need! Aam Aadmi Party laborers will battle,” Mr Gadhvi tweeted.

The AAP’s “Modi Hatao, Desh Bachao” crusade was sent off in 11 dialects the nation over. Other than English, Hindi and Urdu, banners have been delivered in Gujarati, Punjabi, Telugu, Bengali, Oriya, Kannada, Malayalam and Marathi also.

Last week, a large number of banners targetting the PM showed up on walls in the public capital, setting off a gigantic police crackdown in which 49 FIRs were enrolled and six individuals were captured. Two of the men captured possessed a print machine.

The Delhi Police said that the captures were made for ruining public property and for the way that the banners didn’t convey the name of the print machine where they were printed, as legally necessary.

Answering the captures, Delhi Boss Pastor Arvind Kejriwal said even the English didn’t capture the individuals who set up banners against them during the autonomy development.

“Indeed, even before autonomy when political dissidents used to set up banners, there were no FIRs or activity against them by the English,” Mr Kejriwal said as cited by news office PTI. “Bhagat Singh had glued a ton of banners during the English rule, not a solitary FIR was stopped against him.”

Last year, AAP won five seats and got 13% of the well known vote in the Gujarat Get together decisions. BJP, as was normal, kept 156 successes in the 182-seat solid Gathering.
