Gujarat BJP has filed a complaint with the Election Commission against Union Minister and Congress leader Kapil Sibal for his alleged remarks against Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
State BJP election cell convenor Parindu Bhagat has filed the complaint against Sibal, claiming that the latter had allegedly made anti-Modi remarks in Delhi on April 1.
“In this complaint, we have mentioned that Chief Minister Narendra Modi is the key campaigner of the BJP and is the most popular leader in contemporary politics in the country. By making outrageous remarks against him, Sibal has tried to prove that the Congress party runs the judiciary in the country,” a BJP release said.
Moreover, by making the remarks, he has violated model code of conduct as well as provisions of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and People’s Representation Act, 1951, it said.
Campaigning for the BJP in Assam on Saturday, Modi had challenged the Congress party and Sibal to get him arrested.
Modi said that Sibal had allegedly warned him that if he (Modi) criticises Congress, he will be jailed.
