Goa: Kejriwal gets clean chit in poll code violation complaint
Delhi Chief Minister and senior Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal Saturday got a clean chit from poll authorities in Goa in a local BJP leader's complaint about model code of conduct violation.
Goa BJP leader Keshav Prabhu, in his complaint to the Chief Electoral Office in Goa, had alleged that Kejriwal, during a speech in Margao on April 13, had tried to incite religious sentiments and create fear among the state's Muslims and Christians.
In an order passed on Saturday, Goa Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Kunal said that post inquiry, it was observed "there is no direct statement which is objectionable, derogatory or violation of model code of conduct so also there is no inflammatory statement".
"Hence, the matter is treated as disposed," Kunal said quoting the inquiry report submitted by South Goa district election officer Ajit Roy.
