At a public rally at Deoband on April 7, Mayawati was openly polarising votes by asking Muslims not to split their vote between Congress and SP-BSP alliance and rather consolidate their vote in favour of the alliance candidate. The Commission had noted her statements and later found that she had appealed to secure votes on religious lines violating the Model Code of Conduct.

The ECI had also issued a show-cause notice to Yogi Adityanath after he had allegedly used the word ‘virus’ in reference to Indian Union Muslim League, and for invoking the name of ‘Bajrang Bali’ during a public rally at Meerut on April 9. he had said that if the Congress, SP and the BSP had faith in “Ali”, then BJP also have faith in “Bajrang Bali”.

Earlier, the Election Commission had warned UP CM to be careful with his choice of words, as it had found that his ‘Modiji ki Sena’ comment had violated the MCC.
