New Delhi, Feb 2: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Monday filed a complaint with the Election Commission against BJP for allegedly targeting party leader Arvind Kejriwal's "gotra" (sub-caste) in an advertisement mocking Arvind Kejriwal.

"What has happened to the BJP, first they targeted my children, but I tolerated it. Annaji has said we must have capacity to tolerate insult," Kejriwal tweeted.

Kejriwal's 'gotra' ad: AAP to approach EC against BJP advertisement.
"In social life, I never complained against personal insult. But this advertisement crosses the limit. They are calling the whole Agrawal caste destructive. They say I belong to a destructive subcaste," he said.

"They have insulted the Agrawal society. They must apologise," he said, adding that his party will approach the EC.

The advertisement featured a caricature of Kejriwal, saying he will disrupt the Republic Day parade, and also ask for a VIP pass next year. It used the term "upadravi gotra" or destructive subcaste alluding to Kejriwal, the former Delhi chief minister and AAP chief.
