The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) urged Election Commission to take action against Aam Aadmi party leader Bhagwant Mann and Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Mohammad Mustafa for allegedly making inciting statements and trying to coerce the voters, respectively.
SAD has filed two separate complaints in this regard before Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi.
The party Secretary Charanjit Brar has submitted purported video clips along with its complaints to the EC.
The party has accused Mann of openly inciting people to throw stones at senior leaders of the SAD and had even admitted the same during a television interview.
It alleged that Mann urged people not to sow crops on part of their land in order to collect stones which could be used against Akali leaders and also asked them to stone the buses owned by SAD leaders.
In a separate complaint, the party claimed that Mustafa who is posted as DGP (PSHRC), whose wife has been given ticket by Congress from Malerkotla seat, was allegedly coercing voters to support her candidature.
In the complaint, it said according to reports received from SAD candidate, the DGP was allegedly openly roaming around in the constituency to canvas for votes for the Congress. SAD urged Commission to find out how Mustafa was visiting Malerkotla without taking leave from his department.
The complaint highlighted the violation of Model Code of Conduct t and asked the Commission to conduct an inquiry and take appropriate action in the matter.
