New Delhi: The Election Commission, in unprecedented strict action against complaints of violation of the model code of conduct, has banned Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati from campaigning for days for the Lok Sabha election.

election commissionThe Election Commission’s ban will be in force beginning 16 April. It will be applicable for 72 hours for Yogi Adityanath and 48 hours for Mayawati.

During this time, Yogi Adityanath and Mayawati will not be able to address any rally, nor will they be able to use social media or give interviews to anyone. The Election Commission’s action will be effective beginning at 6 AM on 16 April.

Yogi Adityanath will not be able to promote the BJP on 16, 17 and 18 of April. Mayawati will not be able to campaign on 16 and 17 April.

What Election Commission found objectionable

BSP chief Mayawati had appealed for votes from the Muslim community in particular during her election rally in Deoband, Uttar Pradesh. Mayawati had said in her speech that people of the Islamic community should not get divided and that all of them must vote for her party, the BSP.

This statement of Mayawati was deemed a violation of the code that bans seeking votes in the name of religion.

On the other hand, Uttar Pradesh’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, while attacking Mayawati in an address, said if the opposition liked Ali, “then we like the Bajrangbali”.

The Election Commission took cognizance of these statements by the leaders and gave instructions to both the leaders to desist from such rhetoric.

Supreme Court had rebuked EC

Earlier, on Monday morning, the Supreme Court had objected to Mayawati’s speech in the Deoband rally. The court asked the commission what action it had taken in this matter.

The Supreme Court said that the commission was still issuing notices alone rather than take any strict action.
