New Delhi: Delhi Congress ton Sunday wrote a letter to Election Commission to deploy more security personnel in minority dominated areas, expressing concern that the BJP may create social unrest on the polling day to polarize votes.

"The BJP could create social unrest on the polling day, and therefore the Pradesh Congress has written to the Election Commission to deploy more security personnel at the minority dominated areas," said DPCC president Arvinder Singh.

Singh, along with CLP leader Haroon Yusuf and chief spokesperson Mukesh Sharma, while talking to reporters at a joint press conference said that the BJP has totally accepted defeat and that is why it first cancelled its Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi`s rally and then his 3D publicity campaign.

"...And because of this we are afraid that the BJP and the RSS may resort to rumours on the polling day to spread social unrest and polarize votes. This is why we have demanded more security in minority areas," said Sharma.

The leaders also claimed that the BJP and the Sangh Parivar has chickened out of Narendra Modi`s election campaign as they feared that they would not be able to match the tremendous response rallies of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi garnered in the national capital.

"First his Monday rally and then the 3D publicity campaign was not cancelled due to technical reasons, but fearing lack of similar support from the people the Congress` rallies have got. The Modi bubble has totally burst in Delhi," said Singh.
