Opposing Party Receives EC Notice Over Comments Against Indian PM

The Election Commission of India has issued a show-cause notice to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). The Chief of the AAP and Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, have received the notice. The party allegedly made several unverified and offensive comments about the current Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. The party must respond to the charges of model code violations.

The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) approached the Election Commission on Nov. 10 and accused the AAP of making “unethical” and “frivolous” remarks regarding PM Modi. They also shared edited videos poking fun at the PM on social media.


A BJP delegation consisting of Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, MP Anil Baluni, and party leader Om Pathak approached the EC poll panel with the issue.

Mr. Puri states, “The AAP posted videos and tweets (on X) making unethical, unacceptable, and reprehensible comments about the democratically elected head of state."


In the EC’s notice to the Aam Aadmi Party, it states, “The national convener of the Aam Aadmi Party is called upon to explain the statements/allegations/averments made in the alleged social media posts under reference against a star campaigner of another national party and against the political party, and by insinuation and innuendo against the candidates for the state elections, and to show cause why appropriate action for violation of the model code of conduct read with relevant election and penal laws should not be taken against you.”


The poll panel has taken its stand. If the AAP does not respond during the stipulated time, the panel will presume that the party is uninterested in the matter and will take appropriate action against the offenders.


Notice Issued To Congress

The EC also issued a similar show-cause notice to the Congress party this Tuesday. Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra allegedly made unfounded comments regarding PM Modi at an election rally.

The EC poll panel has asked Gandhi to clarify her comments on Thursday at 8:00 p.m. The BJP states that Priyanka Gandhi made a “false” comment regarding PM Modi and his government, which privatized public sector undertakings.

The following five states will hold the assembly elections: Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Telangana, and Mizoram. Mizoram has already held a single-phase election this month.
