NEW DELHI: Former Delhi BJP chief Vijender Gupta on Thursday met city Police Commissioner B S Bassi and submitted a complaint alleging circulation of malicious SMSes to instigate riots on the day of vote counting. 

An investigation has been ordered into the matter. Bassi assured that an FIR will be filed and precautionary steps will be taken to stop circulation of any malicious content. “A malicious campaign is being run to disseminate fear among the minority community and to instigate riots in the country on May 16,” Gupta said in the complaint, adding that area around western UP, including Amroha, Meerut, Moradabad and Bareilly, are likely to be most affected.

“Modi is a fascist. Does not believe in democracy, secularism or nationalism. He will tamper with counting. We cannot allow that! Muslims of Muzzafarnagar, Meerut, Saharanpur prepare for resistance. Sanatani Hindus will help you when Sanghi goondas come baying for blood,” the complaint quotes messages being sent through SMS and e-mails.

The BJP claims the messages clearly indicate that Modi is being vilified and used at the hands of anti-nationals to incite violence. “When the entire nation is awaiting election results, such messages could play havoc in smooth transfer of power,” Gupta said.
