NEW DELHI: The Election Commission of India on Wednesday issued notice to the former Karnataka CM and BRS president K Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR) over his “vulgar” and “derogatory” remarks made on Congress during a press meet in Sircilla on April 5.
“The commission has received a complaint dated April 6 from G Niranjan, vice president, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee, wherein it has been alleged that K Chandrasekhar Rao in his press meet in Sircilla, made vulgar, derogatory and objectionable allegations against the Congress party,” the notice said.
The EC noted that KCR had violated the model code of conduct even after issuing several instructions regarding his speech.
The poll authority indicated that if KCR does not respond within time, the Election Commission will take appropriate action.
This comes a day after KCR stepped up his attack on Congress calling it a “government of lilliputs”.
Ramping up his attack on the BRS leader, Telangana CM Revanth Reddy said on Monday that KCR had “mortgaged” the self-respect of his party volunteers to BJP in order to win bail for his daughter K Kavitha and defeat Congress, particularly in five seats.
