New Delhi (13/01/2020): Delhi BJP sent one defamation notice to the ruling Aam Aadmi Party seeking ₹500 crore in damages after the ruling tweeted a video that showed Manoj Tiwari dancing to the tune of their campaign song.
Watch the video here:
The video is an edited version of Tiwari’s Bhojpuri albums with “Lage Raho Kejriwal” soundtrack. “Who gave AAP the right to use my videos for its theme song for the polls,” Tiwari said.
The BJP Delhi president also claimed that the AAP chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is “baffled” by the prospects of his party’s defeat in the assembly polls, scheduled on February 8.
Tiwari said a complaint has been made to the Election Commission about the video, and ₹500 crore has been sought as damages for defamation and violation of intellectual property rights.
