AAP seeks security for candidates


Chandigarh, February 4

A delegation of AAP leaders, led by Leader of Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema, today met the State Election Commissioner (SEC) and sought security for the party candidates for the MC polls.

It demanded the deployment of paramilitary forces for the smooth conduct of the election process and the safety of the citizens. The delegation handed over a memorandum to the SEC, mentioning the ordeal faced by the AAP candidates across the state during the ongoing election process.

Cheema said several incidents in various districts were reported in which the ruling party committed blatant hooliganism, intimidated and prevented AAP candidates from filing the nomination papers, thus assassinating democracy. — TNS
