Taking a strong cognizance, The Poll Commission of India on Thursday issued a fresh notice to Bharatiya Janata Party Star Campaigner Yogi Adityanath over his communal remarks which he made during a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal on April 19. The poll office has asked the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister to furnish a reply within 24 hours.

Yogi Adityanath’s controversial remarks came days after EC barred him from campaigning for 72 hours for making a religious sensitive comment and violating the poll code of conduct.

Uttar Chief Minister and BJP Star Campaigner Yogi Adityanath had on April 9 made a controversial remark on Ali and Bajrangbali.
