New Delhi: Delhi's Chief Electoral Office (CEO) on Monday issued notices to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Aam Admi Party (AAP) for violating the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) and not abiding by the instructions of the Election Commission of India (ECI) and the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR).

The Delhi CEO has issued two notices against the AAP and one against the Delhi unit of the BJP.

A video mash-up was tweeted from AAP's official tweeter handle which shows Manoj Tiwari dancing to the tune of AAP's campaign song 'Lage Raho Kejriwal'. The tweet captioned "#LageRahoKejriwal song is so good even sir Manoj Tiwari is dancing on it."

The second notice against the AAP is for a campaign video showing children singing and dancing despite the instruction of ECI and NCPCR.

The notice issued to Delhi BJP was based on a complaint filed by the AAP for making an unsubstantiated allegation against the city's ruling party on the Twitter account.
