Congress leader C P Joshi given clean chit by the Election Commission for his remark on Modi’s caste

EC said as the video is taken from social media, its authenticity is under suspicion

Senior Congress leader C P Joshi has been given a clean chit by the Election Commission of India in a complaint filed by the BJP alleging that Joshi had invoked caste and religion in order to get votes.

In a video that went viral few days back, Joshi was seen claiming that only pandits, intellectuals, Brahmins know about Hinduism, and others should not talk about the religion.

Prima facie, the allegation was not found to be proved by the Investigating Officer. An inquiry committee, headed by the election officer of Rajsamand district, admitted that the facts stated in the complaint are not confirmed.

The Committee in its report has said that the video submitted in the complaint is taken from social media, therefore its authenticity is under suspicion. And also Joshi does not appear to be appealing to any particular caste or religion for votes.

Joshi had apologised for his remarks made in the video. “Respecting the ideals of the Congress and the sentiments of the party workers, I express remorse for my statement if it caused any hurt to the sentiments of any section of the society,” he said in his apology.

He was also given a notice by Nathdwara Returning Officer to file a reply in relation to the remarks made in the video. Joshi is a candidate from Nathdwara Assembly constituency.
