Election Commission issued notice to RaGa on ISI remark, RaGa requests more time to file reply


Addressing an election rally in Indore, Rahul Gandhi (RaGa) claimed that Pakistani intelligence agencies ISI were trying to lure some victims of the Muzaffarnagar riots into joining terror. He also blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party for Muzaffarnagar riots. Link below:

BJP complained to Election commission accusing Rahul of inciting communal tension and violating model code of conduct. Based on BJP’s complaint EC issued notice to Rahul. RaGa was taken aback. How can EC issue notice to me? I am yuvraj of Congres Party and India.  He perhaps would have taken it lightly. With the time of replying to notice nearing and reply not ready RaGa approached EC of extension by a week. He realized how useless his Law Minister and Attorney Generals are when they were unable to file reply within time. Whole battery of lawyers seemed to be a big waste.

EC gave extension of only 4 days and yesterday RaGa filed reply. Now BJP wants to be a party to the case and get a copy of RaGa’s reply. Don’t think will be provided. Further punishment will also not be severe and RaGa could just be issued a warning and let off

Nonetheless symbolic gesture shows EC is non partisan and RaGa is not yuyraj of country may be of Congress party. Don’t take democratic institutions for granted, RaGa.
