AAP demands action against Modi over affidavit
The Aam Aadmi Party today demanded the Gujarat Police to take action against Chief Minister and BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi over a complaint filed by the party in connection with his marital status in nomination papers for Lok Sabha election.
The AAP alleged that the BJP's prime ministerial candidate has given incomplete affidavit at the time of filing his nomination.
"He should be the role model of high character, but by taking oath of Indian Constitution he assumed the office of the Chief Minister by giving wrong/incomplete affidavit," AAP's Gujarat unit secretary Sanjeev Srivastav said in a statement.
He said by this act Mr Modi "has kept the Indian public in dark', which was a criminal offence as per the Indian Penal Code.
'Through his arrogant and corrupt practices, Mr Modi tried to put a clean image, which is shattered when he filed his Lok Sabha nomination from Vadodara where he has given the name of his wife Jashodaben.
This was never revealed by him in his earlier nominations, this means either he had hidden information at the time of 2012 nomination, or the information given at the time of 2014 nomination is wrong,' Mr Srivastav said.
He said to file the wrong affidavit was a criminal offence under IPC.
'Hence we have requested to police to act against Mr Modi immediately without coming under any pressure, as the law is equal for all. It is further stated that by filing the wrong/incomplete affidavit he became the Chief Minister,' Mr Srivastav said.
He said AAP member Nishant Varma has filed an application with Ranip police station in Ahmedabad to take appropriate action against Mr Modi.
