EC slaps new 24-hour campaign ban on BJP’s Parvesh Verma for calling Kejriwal terrorist
New Delhi, Feb 05: The Election Commission on Wednesday barred BJP MP Parvesh Verma for his fresh remarks against Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal during a TV debate. Campaigning for Delhi Assembly Elections due on February 8 will end at 5 pm on Thursday.
Last week the poll panel had banned him from campaigning in the Delhi elections for 96 hours.
Addressing a rally in Delhi on January 29, BJP leader Parvesh Verma compared the Delhi CM to a terrorist and said, "In Delhi, many 'natwarlals' and terrorists like Kejriwal are hiding. I don't understand if we should fight with terrorists in Kashmir or with terrorist Kejriwal in Delhi."
