AAP campaign drive affected by posters
New Delhi, Oct 4: In what could be a massive blow to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Delhi Police have taken up a special task ahead of the Delhi Assembly elections- to remove posters and hoardings of political parties that have been put up illegally across the capital.

One of the worst effected is the AAP, that was solely dependent on the autos and the private property of the volunteers and members for public visibility. The party has now started removing their hoardings and posters from buildings and autos.

However the party claims that when the drive had started last Friday, only their posters were being targeted. Police officials, on the other hand, have a different story to tell. They said that no particular party was bring targeted and that even BJP's posters were taken down ahead of his rally in New Delhi.

Police officials clarified that it was against the law to deface the public property by putting up posters. "We take them down once in a while. But with the elections just a month and a half away, the police has embarked on a special drive to remove all unauthorised posters and horadings from the city," a senior police official said.

AAP spokersperson claimed that all their volunteers were directed to remove the posters and horadings themselves.
