New Delhi: The Delhi BJP on Sunday filed a complaint with the Election Commission against Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, accusing him of violating the Model Code of Conduct during the civic polls.

Demanding legal action against Sisodia, Delhi BJP vice-president Abhay Verma and BJP Legal Cell member Neeraj claimed that the AAP leader had, during an interview to a private news channel, appealed to the people to vote for Aam Aadmi Party even while balloting for the three municipal corporations was on.

"Repeated violation of Model Code of Conduct by Aam Aadmi Party leaders is a repeat of what they did during the 2015 Vidhan Sabha elections in Delhi, Punjab, and Goa. It is a proof of anarchic nature of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's party," Bharatiya Janata Party's Delhi unit President Manoj Tiwari told IANS.

Earlier on Saturday, Tiwari has shared a letter on Twitter urging the SEC to block AAP leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's Facebook account for breaching election code of conduct.

Tiwari while speaking to CNN-News18 also rejected the Sisodia's claims that the municipality elections were a referendum on the 10 years rule of BJP in the municipal corporations of Delhi.
