The AAP said BJP MPs made “false and fabricated” videos.

AAP has asked the Election Commission to impose a 48-hour campaigning ban on Union Home Minister Amit Shah for allegedly tweeting a “fake” video on Delhi government schools, party leader Sanjay Singh said on Wednesday.

AAP leaders Singh and Pankaj Gupta complained to the EC against the circulation of the “fake” videos of Delhi government schools by BJP leaders to “falsely defame” Delhiites.

The AAP, in its complaint to the EC, also said BJP MPs — Gautam Gambhir, Parvesh Verma and Hans Raj Hans — made “false and fabricated” videos to put out a wrong picture of Delhi government schools to the people.
