Noida: The Noida unit of Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday filed a written complaint against unidentified persons who allegedly defaced the poster of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the city.
The incident is said to have taken place near Sector 35 area of Noida.
It is alleged that on Sunday, some Congress workers smeared grease on the poster of PM Modi as a mark of protest against the completion of two years of the BJP-led NDA government in centre.
"VK Pandey, the owner of the hoarding approached us with a complaint and an FIR was registered against unidentified persons," Neeraj Kumar Singh, in charge, Sector 24 police station, said.
The city unit of the Congress maintained that they have only registered their protest against the ‘fake advertisements of the achievements’ of the Modi-led government.
“What police case do they want against us? Can’t we mark our protest against the fake advertisements by the government? People are suffering from skyrocketing prices of petrol, diesel, pulses, vegetables and other basic commodities. The government has recently imposed additional tax on each product and services. The BJP is trying to manipulate the issue with such acts. There was nothing wrong in that protest,” said Pawan Sharma, in charge, Noida city Congress committee.
