New Delhi, October 30
Cracking whip on political leaders in Madhya Pradesh for their role and utterances, the Election Commission (EC) today censured BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya for his “Chunnu-Munnu” remark and revoked the “star campaigner” status of former MP CM Kamal Nath for repeated violations of the model code of conduct during campaign for the byelections in 28 Assembly constituencies in the state.
Taking cognisance of Vijayvargiya’s “Chunnu-Munnu” remark against Congress’ Digvijaya Singh and Nath, the EC had issued a notice to the BJP leader on October 26 seeking his reply, as the BJP leader had also dubbed them as “gaddaars (traitors)”.
Vijayvargiya said the remark quoted in the notice was misunderstood and was completely out of context.
