In the complaint, the party alleged that Kejriwal has "violated the Model Code of Conduct by posting offending
election material on his Facebook wall" and "campaigning beyond the prescribed time through his social media handles".

The complaint has been filed on the direction of Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari at the North Avenue police station.

The Delhi BJP also demanded that Kejriwal's Facebook account should be blocked.

On Thursday, Kejriwal had said that the people of Delhi would risk their children's lives if they voted for the BJP in the MCD polls, during a Facebook Live event.

"If you vote for the BJP and if your child falls prey to chikungunya or dengue, you are responsible for it. I can offer free treatment to your child in (the Delhi government) hospitals, but what led to him or her to contract dengue?

"If someone in your home falls ill then you are responsible because you voted for the party which is
synonymous to chikungunya, malaria, dengue and garbage," Kejriwal was quoted as saying.
