New Delhi: BJP on Tuesday filed a complaint at the Election Commission of India against Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge’ s son Priyank Kharge for using “derogatory remarks” against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The delegation led by the Union Minister Piyush Goyal met the Chief Election Commission Rajiv Kumar in New Delhi and demanded a “strongest action” against Priyank Kharge.
The BJP filed a complaint after Kharge’s son Priyank Kharge’ allegedly called the PM ‘nalayak beta’ during the election rally.
Earlier Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge himself used ‘venomous snake’ barb against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Talking to the reporters, Union Minister Piyush Goyal said that “BJP condemned the foul language being used by Congress’ President son against Prime Minister Modi in Karnataka and we demand a strongest action against him”.
Goyal added that “Congress has crossed all its limits and is using the foul language not only against PM Modi but also against other constitutional authorities of the country”
He alleged that Congress is trying to derail the process of elections in Karnataka.
“We hope that the elections commission will take the strongest against the Congress leader” he said.
Goyal also said the Congress is making objectionable remarks because they knew that “BJP is coming to power again in the state”
He said, “They are trying to target different communities and today’s Congress manifesto describes it all”.
In its Manifesto, Congress on Tuesday promised to ban right-wing outfits like Bajrang Dal.
Condemning the Congress Manifesto, Prush Goyal said “Congress’ poll promise to ban Bajrang Dal in Karnataka is an insult to Lord Hanuman”.
