New Delhi: More than 100 FIRs have been registered and six people have been arrested in connection with objectionable posters, including those with derogatory remarks against the Prime Minister, across the national capital.

 

As per the allegations, some parts of Delhi also had posters with the caption "Modi Hatao Desh Bachao".
