Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s graveyard remark during Fatehpur rally on Sunday may cost dear to BJP in ongoing Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. According to reports, Congress is going to file a complaint with Election Commission, against PM Modi, over his ‘over highly deplorable statement in Fatehpur rally’.
Speaking to news agency ANI, Secretary of Legal and Human Rights department of Congress party KC Mittal said that Congress will file a complaint against the prime minister’s controversial remarks during campaigning.
PM Modi, on Sunday, accused Samajwadi Party government of bias against Hindus in Uttar Pradesh. Addressing a poll rally in fatehpur, he said, “Gaon mein agar kabristan banta hai, to gaon mein shamshaan bhi banana chahiye. Agar Ramzan mein bijli milti hai, to Diwali mein bhi milni chahiye. Agar Holi mein bijli milti hai, to Eid par bhi bijli milni chahiye. Bhedbhav nahin hona chahiye (If a village gets a graveyard, it should get a cremation ground too. If there is electricity during Ramzan, there should be electricity during Diwali too. If there is electricity during Holi, there should be electricity during Eid too. There should not be any discrimination.”
The Supreme Court, in January, had stated that seeking votes on the basis of ‘religion, caste ,race, community or language was not legal’.
