Lucknow, March 7: Uttar Pradesh’s chief electoral officer Friday sent a preliminary report to the Election Commission of India on the clashes between Aam Aadmi Party and BJP workers here Wednesday.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers fought a pitched battle at the Vidhan Sabha Road and several workers from both the sides were injured.
