A Dhanbad resident on Friday filed A complaint at the Kotwali police station here against the state spokesperson of the BJP for forcefully sticking a sticker bearing Narendra Modis name on his vehicle.
Rudra Pratap Singh,resident of Dhanbad districts Jharia,has complained that individuals at the behest of BJP leader Sanjay Seth stopped his vehicle and stuck the sticker. I was in my car near the Firayalal Chowk on Thursday evening when a group of people stopped me and stuck it on my windshield. When I asked why they were doing it,they said that Sanjay Seth was their leader, said Singh to a regional news channel. His complaint mentions that the youngsters were trying to force on him an ideology that he does not agree with.
We do not know what to do with the complaint. I dont think there are grounds to file a First Information Report with its contents, said a policeman at the Kotwali station,who did not want to be named for this story.
The sticker campaign had been launched in Ranchi on Wednesday. We did not force anyone to join our campaign. If the man had any problems,why didnt he inform the police immediately? said Sanjay Seth.
He said that he was organising the campaign in his capacity as the convenor of NaMo Mantra,which he claims is an independent organisation. This,despite the stickers bearing images of the lotus,the poll symbol of the BJP. The NaMo Mantra campaign was launched nationwide on September 17,the birthday of Narendra Modi,by like-minded people who want to see Modi become the next Prime Minister. This has nothing to do with the BJP. We have issued one lakh stickers saying Modi Lao Desh Bachao – to mark the launch of the campaign, said Seth,talking on the phone,saying that he was in Ranchis Harmu continuing the sticker campaign. He went on to add that the complaint was politically motivated.
A similar slogan is reportedly being used by textile traders of Gujarats Surat,who plan to distribute 30 lakh boxes of clothes to voters.
