New Delhi, Aug 30 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Thursday asked the Election Commission to file a response on an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) plea challenging the registration of an ‘Aapki Apni Party’ as a new political party.

Justice Siddharth Mridul sought the response from the poll panel which has rejected the AAP’s objection against the registration of the ‘Aapki Apni Party’ as a political party under the Representation of People Act.

In its plea, the AAP demanded de-registration of the ‘Aapki Apni Party’ saying the abbreviation of both the parties would be similar and may lead to confusion among voters. The court has posted the matter for hearing for November 13.
