Election Commission censures BJP’s Giriraj Singh for ‘grave’ remark

The Election Commission Sunday censured Union minister and BJP leader Giriraj Singh for his communal remarks.

The commission also condemned his statement and asked him to be careful with his utterances during the enforcement of the model code period.

The poll panel said Singh has violated provisions of the model code and directions of the Supreme Court which had said that religion cannot be used while making statements during campaigning.

Taking suo motu cognisance, the Begusarai district administration in Bihar had on April 25 booked Singh for violating the poll code and the Representation of the People Act by making controversial remarks against Muslims at a rally on April 24.
