The Aam Aadmi Party, which is in power in Delhi, today appealed to the people of the national capital to spread the word on the "good work" done by its government on social media as it launched its digital campaign for the assembly elections that begin next month. "Fifty Delhiites whose videos will go viral will be invited for dinner after polls," party chief Arvind Kejriwal said.

"Upload videos on good works of Delhi government and tell people how you benefitted from it on Twitter, Instagram Facebook. Also WhatsApp people known to you in these states appealing them to give a chance to Kejriwal," the AAP chief said as he launched "Ek Mauka Kejriwal Ko" (Give Kejriwal a chance) campaign today.

Mr Kejriwal said his government has done a number of good works like providing free electricity and water in Delhi.

Meanwhile, the Election Commission of India today sent a notice to Aam Aadmi Party Chief Ministerial candidate Bhagwant Mann for violating protocols regarding Covid-19 that were issued by it earlier this month. Mr Mann, who is also the party's Punjab chief and a Member of Parliament from Sangrur, on Sunday launched his campaign to contest the upcoming Punjab assembly elections from the Dhuri assembly seat.

A large crowd had welcomed him in various villages, raising slogans and showering flowers. The party claimed that they had invited only a few locals but a large number turned out as the news of his visit spread on social media.

The election body had on January 8, while announcing the poll dates, issued revised "broad guidelines" in view of Covid-19 that banned roadshows and rallies till January 15. The ban was extended till the end of this month on Saturday.
