“Dictatorship of Modi government is at its peak. What is so objectionable in this poster that Modi ji has filed 100 FIR? PM Modi, you probably do not know but India is a democratic country. So scared of one poster! Why?” AAP tweeted.
Police claimed the FIRs were filed for violation of the Printing Press Act and Defacement of Property Act. There was no mention of the printing press or the publisher on the posters, they added.
