However, this is not the first time that such posters on Modi surfaced in the capital. In May 2021, the Delhi Police registered FIRs against at least 25 persons for allegedly putting up posters with comments critical of the Prime Minister regarding the COVID vaccination drive.
The posters with the text, “Modi ji humare bacchon ki vaccine ko videsh kyu bhej diya (Why did you send vaccines meant for our children to foreign nations)”. The posters did not have any name and details of the organisation or party behind it.
A writ petition was also moved before the Supreme Court seeking quashing of all the FIRs registered by Delhi Police against those who allegedly put up the posters.
