BJP moves EC after Gujarat Congress leader calls Modi ‘donkey’
The Gujarat unit of the BJP has complained to the Election Commission (EC) against Congress leader Arjun Modhwadia for using ‘unparliamentary’ language and words like ‘donkey’ while criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In a letter to the EC headquarters in New Delhi, the state BJP’s legal cell said the remarks were an insult to the constitutional post and a violation of the model code of conduct.
“Modhwadia during a public rally at Deesa town in Banaskantha district uttered unparliamentary, abusive and foul words against the Prime Minister by describing him as a ‘donkey’,” said the letter, released Thursday by the BJP. “This is a clear violation of the election code of conduct and an insult to the constitutional post,” the letter stated.
