EC serves notices to Yogi Adityanath, Mayawati over 'communal' remark

Lucknow, Apr 12 (UNI) The Election Commission has served showcause notices to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati, for violating the Election Model Code of Conduct (MCC) during their speeches.

The notices were served to both the leaders on Thursday night and they have been given 24 hours to submit their replies.

Adityanath made remarks on "Ali" and "Bajrang Bali," while addressing a rally in Meerut.

Mayawati too was given the notice over appealing to the Muslims community to back the grand alliance candidate in Deoband, during a joint rally on April 7.

The Chief Minister's statement came after Mayawati appealed to Muslims not to support the Congress, as they were the only party fighting the BJP.

Earlier, the EC had warned Adityanath, after he was found violating the MCC, when he said ' Modiji ki sena,' during a rally in Ghaziabad.
