New York: In an apparent act of racism, election sign boards of an Indian-American mayoral candidate and his running mates in New Jersey have been defaced with a swastika and words "Never In Edison".

Sudhanshu Prasad, running for office as Edison Mayor, was alerted to the acts of vandalism following which a report was filed with the police, who said other such acts took place throughout Edison in town parks and public areas.

The sign boards included the pictures of Prasad's running mates - Sheila Angalet, Mohin Patel, Steven Nagel and Cynthia Doherty - were defaced with a swastika, a bindi, and the words "Never In Edison" hand-written across one sign and "dotheads" on another sign two days ago.

"We strongly denounce these deplorable acts. This is a cowardly act of bigotry which have no place in the Township of Edison, nor are they representative of the beliefs and hearts of the good citizens of Edison," Prasad, a medical practitioner, said.
