AAP leader Prashant Bhushan has complaint to Election Commission regarding the duals standard am attaching below the complaint by Somnath Bharti to the SSP detailing the serious assault on him by the BJP supporters in Varanasi, and the totally apathetic attitude of the police authorities there. This is in continuation of several attacks to disrupt the campaigning by Arvind Kejriwal and his volunteers in Varanasi. Most of these assaults have been reported in the media in the last few days.
In a letter, he said that it appears that there is a concerted attempt on the instructions and instigation of sections of the leadership of the BJP to encourage and abet these attacks, which are preventing a fair campaign by us. We expect these attacks to become worse in the days to come. The local police authorities are unable and unwilling to do anything to stop there attacks or to identify and apprehend the masterminds behind these attacks.
He further writes that in these circumstances, I would request you to direct the deployment of some central security forces and some senior central observers in Varanasi to ensure that the campaign is not marred by violence.
