Election Commission asks AAP to furnish its poll manifestos


The Election Commission has asked the AAP to submit its manifestos for Punjab, including the ones it released on dalits and farmers, as it is mandatory for parties.

The matter was raised by the Election Commission recently in a meeting with representatives of the political parties in poll-bound Punjab.
