The Congress questioned Election Commission today after it let go off Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath with a light rap for his "Modiji ki Sena" remark while adding that the Uttar Pradesh CM had insulted the Indian Army and the poll body writes a "love letter" to him.
Congress lashed out heavily on the Election Commission's message to NITI Aayog vice-chairman Rajiv Kumar, saying he criticized the party's proposed minimum income scheme NYAY and the poll body just simply warned him to not repeat such behavior and statement in the future.
Congress' chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala took to Twitter to express the Party’s anguish:
Has the MCC now become ''Modi Code of Conduct'?
Adityanath insults the Indian Army -- EC writes a love letter to him.
Policy Commission censors VC justice plan - EC says 'Do not go ahead'.
Why is the Election Commission frightened by showing 'Satasin Shakti's mirror of truth'?
