New Delhi: Delhi BJP on Thuesday accused the State Election Commission of ignoring its requests and complaints on issues related to municipal polls to be held on Sunday.

Senior BJP leader VK Malhotra said the party submitted a number of requests and complaints to the commission in the last couple of weeks but it neither responded nor took action based on the petitions of the party.

Citing examples, he said BJP had lodged a complaint with the Commission regarding violation of election norms by DPCC chief JP Agarwal by allegedly seeking votes by invoking religious sentiments.

"Similarly a complaint was made to Election Commission regarding violation of model code of conduct and involvement in criminal offence by supporters of a Congress candidate in Ward No 44 in Kamruddin Nagar in North Delhi. But no action has been taken," Malhotra alleged

He said the party also requested Commission about guidelines for Radio and Television advertisements but it has not received any communication from the Commission.
