The Election Commission of India on Thursday issued notices to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Supremo Mayawati for their communal remarks made during addressing a rally. The poll body has asked both the politicians to furnish response within 24 hours.

UP CM and BJP Star Campaigner Yogi Adityanath had on April 9 made a controversial remark on Ali and Bajrangbali. Yogi while addressing a gatthering in UP’s Meerut said ‘Congress and Mahagathbandhan have faith in Ali, then we have faith in Bajrangbali’.

While BSP Chief Mayawati while addressing a rally in Saharanpur’ Deoband made a communal appeal to Muslims, asked them not to allow a division of their votes. Mayawati reportedly said that Mahagathbandhan is defeating BJP, and not the Congress, a want to make an appeal to Muslim voters not to allow division of votes’.

The Poll body in their notices gave to the reference of the Top Court that does not allow the use of caste and religion to be used in the poll campaign. The Poll Body in the notice further stated that it is of the opinion that the prima facie the leaders have violated the model code of conduct.

However, for Yogi Adityanath it the second time in a run-up to the mega battle of ballots that he received notice by poll body.
