New Delhi: A delegation of BJP leaders Monday submitted a complaint against Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi at the Election Commission here, accusing him of delivering hate speeches.
The BJP leaders alleged that Rahul Gandhi made sensational speeches to spread communal hatred in society.
"Rahul Gandhi is no Digvijaya Singh... He is the topmost leader of Congress and their superstar campaigner. He said BJP incites communal violence, he said Muslims are in touch with ISI, and none of the statements has been denied by the Congress," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.
"We have demanded that the Election Commission should take action against Rahul Gandhi and Congress," he told reporters after submitting the party's complaint to Chief Election Commissioner V.K. Sampath.
The BJP also demanded an apology from the Gandhi scion for stating that the Pakistani intelligence had contacted Muslim youths affected by the Muzaffarnagar communal violence.
The party Friday submitted a letter to the Election Commission that Rahul Gandhi violated the Model Code of Conduct by his hate speeches.
With the announcement of the election schedule, the Model Code of Conduct came into force Oct 4, 2013, in the states of Delhi, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram, where the polls to the state assemblies are to be held, the BJP said.
