The Gandhidham police on Friday started recording statements of people as part of their investigation in the case against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor and former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and five others for alleged violation of model code of conduct of election.

The B Division police in Gandhidham booked Kejriwal and five other AAP workers on Thursday after Kejriwal addressed a gathering of party supporters through loudspeaker system without due permission and thereby violating notification of district magistrate in this regard. On the basis of a complaint filed by Assistant Police Sub Inspector P M Parmar, the police booked the AAP leader under Section 188 of Indian Penal Code.

“We are collecting evidence and recording statements of those present at the time of the incident. Among others, there were three election officers remanded present at the time of the alleged breach of law,” District Superintendent of Police (Kutch East) Deepak Meghani told The Indian Express on Friday.

An offence under Section 188 of IPC can attract a jail term of up to six months and fine up to Rs 2,000.

The DSP said that a salt inspector, the taluka development officer of Gandhidham and chief officer of Gandhidham municipality, the officers who have been given special powers by district magistrate for the elections, were present at Rishabh Corner, where the alleged incident took place. Kejriwal addressed AAP workers for around 10 minutes during his stopover in Gandhidham as party of his day-long tour of Kutch district on Thursday.

“The election offices have made independent videography of the event and we shall seek that also,” Meghani added. It was a case of violation of the notification of district magistrate, hence they had filed a police complaint, he added.

Asked if Kejriwal will be arrested, the DSP said, “We shall keep this open-ended, but no arrest has been made so far.”

Meanwhile Duttesh Bhavsar, Kutch district convenor of AAP, said, “Yes, we admit we have made a mistake. We used 30 watt loudspeaker system in the rush of the district tour and did not know such a small system also warranted prior permission. We shall meet the district collector in this regard.”

    Kejriwal doesn't know what rules, regulations and consution is. He makes his own rules and breaks the others. Its a shame that a man who is calling himself as the people's man doesn't even follow the consution of India

      Why do people talk of "mistakes" by Kejriwal in Gujarat? The w concept of AAP is a mistake. This is not the time to repeat Mahatma hi. The w party is a farce - 49 days of drama in Delhi, while 150 people died of the cold. The media should take this up. And Kejriwal's violent supporters meet up with brooms - this is the height of stupidity. It's time for EC to take firm action against this party of street thugs.

        Kejriwal is a pathologically ambitious man in hurry which makes him tell hundred lies and not only break rules himself but also rewards those who do it, as long as it serves his interest.A case in context when he awarded 50% electricity bill waiver in Delhi as CM for those who did not pay their bill. What kind of precedent this man I setting.He would like to be called as revolutionary but to most of Indian now he nothing more then a rabid dog creating anarchy wherever he sets his foot.

          What Kejriwal has he done so far except dharnas? He intentionally distracts others and seeks attention.I don't understand what kind of politician Kejriwal is.He was always found breaking law. He quit as CM beacuse he has bigger aspiration.

            AAP made a mistake in Gujarat. If they really wanted to expose corrupt Modi, then could have done it in some other way, but what they did is completely childish

              Kejriwal is an immature politician. He thinks that all this is a child's game, but its time to realize that he is into some serious work. This kind of stuff won't help him

                AAP should not be forgiven because they have made mistakes again and again. Kejriwal is not mature enough to handle political stunts. He can only create dramas.

                  Kejriwal is hungry for power and that's why he is doing all this nautanki. He has lost all the respect and faith. Now he has no chance in the LokSabha elections

                    Kejriwal should not have done this. Many of the people are feeling that they have been betra by Kejriwal. He showed us that he is no different than the communal and violent Modi

                      CIA-RAW keep deleting the following paragraph, posted as a comment, from Indian and stani media putting stan and Russia in grave danger:-The deaths of Rajiv and Indira did not matter, only the crimes against Satish Chandra matter. Both partited in the CIA’s crimes against me and both were killed by CIA-RAW because of my influence on them. I was the target in killing them; they themselves did not matter. Nehru was a lifelong British agent, Indira and Rajiv worked for the CIA and so do all Indian politicians. To avoid being killed by CIA-RAW, Rajiv’s son now (on Feb 26 ‘14) made an incredibly stupid and treasonous statement “What superpower? I will rather make a woman safe in a bus” to show to CIA-RAW that he is NOT under my influence and will not entertain any thought of making India a superpower and will keep India poor, weak and enslaved. Narendra Modi should be whipped and hanged for giving a bouquet of roses to an American diplomat in exchange for a strip search and cavity search of an Indian diplomat. After my reference to Advani as Home Minister being forced, with the threat of being prosecuted for Babri Masjid demolition, to visit CIA headquarters and make the Home Ministry partite in the CIA’s crimes against me, CIA-RAW threatened Modi with prosecution for the killing of Muslims in 2002 and so today (Feb 27 ‘14) “Modi signals shift in favour of big retail”, that is Walmart, etc., reversing the BJP’s stand -- while acknowledging this will harm him politically -- and urging Indians to embrace foreign ownership and control of India and other BJP politicians have joined in this treasonous deal with CIA-RAW as Jaitley‘s statement today (Feb 27 ‘14) that Modi “ has been able to overcome a sustained campaign against him over the 2002 Gujarat riots“ shows; CIA-RAW dictates -- with the threat of killing in the case of Rajiv’s son and threat of prosecution in the case of Modi -- what Indian politicians do and say, not India’s or the politicians’ own interests. P. Chidambaram should be whipped and hanged for speaking positively about Harvard University where the world’s greatest scientist and greatest Indian of all time was publicly tortured for being an Indian. The Italian woman and son should be whipped and hanged for partiting in crimes against him with the help of the CIA’s 24-hour satellite surveillance of him for the past 37 years. Arvind Kejriwal and Mamata Banerjee should be whipped and hanged for ociating with CIA-RAW agent Hazare, a follower of M. K. hi who was a lifelong British agent and a homoual who wrote to his white master “How completely you have taken possession of my body; it is slavery with a vengeance”. You do not shake hands with any representative of a country whose potion will be made to eat one another till no one remains alive. Filthy s Manmohan Singh, P. Chidambaram and Raghuram Rajan made India a beggar and slave at the G-20 urging “advanced nations, like the US, to take heed of countries vulnerable to the stimulus withdrawal” and “advanced nations must recognise the impact of their monetary policy decisions on other economies and "be prepared to act if things get out of kilter" “. Why? Because “The reduction in stimulus, known as tapering, may affect capital flows to emerging markets and impact their currencies”. Why do you want to give ownership and control of India to foreign enemies when India has all the investment capital it wants by simply printing the money which is what the U.S. is doing stealing my proposal about money -- see ‘How India’s Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year or More’ : HowIndiasEconomyCanGrowDOTblogspotDOTcom ? These filthy s Manmohan Singh and Raghuram Rajan must also be whipped and hanged along with filthy s Amartya Sen, Subramanian Swamy -- who were both brought to Harvard and one of them given a Nobel prize expressly to provide cover for the crimes against me -- and anyone else in public life you can think of. It is not too late to whip and hang filthy s Vajpayee and George Fernandes both of whom have been faking illness and an inability to speak to avoid answering questions about their partition in the CIA’s crimes against me. Nor is it too late to whip and hang filthy Ram Jethmalani, who was also brought to Harvard to provide cover for crimes against me and rewarded with a half a million dollar per year law practice and filthy L. K Advani who, while Home Minister, was brought, under pain of being prosecuted for the Babri Masjid demolition, to C.I.A. Headquarters to make India’s Home Ministry a partint in the C.I.A.’s crimes against me. Filthy Kejriwal wants to provide a few services at lower rates but my proposal about money shows how to provide all goods and services free of charge to everyone. Filthy M. Karunanidhi should be whipped and hanged; he was having Indian currency printed in China with the help of the Reserve Bank of India chief to provide some freebies to the people of Tamil Nadu as I described in my press releases but kept the crimes against me covered up otherwise everything could be provided free of charge to everyone in India. Filthy Jayalalitha should be whipped and hanged for saying she has a vision for India but keeping quiet about the crimes against me because of which India will remain poor, weak and enslaved despite her vision. The filthy s that are India’s Supreme Court judges should be whipped and hanged for partiting in CIA-RAW’s crimes against me and India by claiming to have lost the papers of a lawsuit I filed after duly acknowledging it as a front page lead report in New York’s News India-Times described two decades ago. I have described RAW’s trafficking of Indian children to Israel to be used as food -- RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom -- and said that “The Jews' fondness for human flesh is far easier sated on Indians than on those around them. Thousands of missing children from India end up in Israeli kitchens and it costs them less than goat meat … When the Congress Party president and her son spent a number of days in Switzerland recently [in 2011] taking care of their black money there, they were told in no uncertain terms by the Jewish bankers that their ability to keep their black money hidden depended on the continuation of the trafficking of Indians for food. Both the Congress Party president and her son had to partake of such food with their bankers to seal the agreement”. I have also described the torture and killing of the children so their skins can be made into shoes and handbags. The above state of affairs cannot be changed except by India’s nuclear forces simultaneously destroying Washington, New York, RAW headquarters, South Block and North Block which they must do without delay, with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be destro, with nuclear warheads already emplaced in them, if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. It is important for stan’s media to inform the world about this so no one will think the nuclear explosions in New Delhi were caused by stan and for Russian media to inform the world about this so no one will think the nuclear explosions in Washington and New York were caused by RussiadiasLegitimateRulerSatishChandraDOTblogspotDOTcom5:16am
