Congress writes to EC against PM Modi’s comment calling Rajiv Gandhi ‘Bhrastachari number 1’, says its against poll code

Congress, which has been chanting the slogan of 'Chowkidar Chor Hai' for months, has written to the EC over PM Modi's remarks on Rajiv Gandhi.

Congress has written a letter to the Election Commission seeking action against Prime Minister Modi regarding his ‘Bhrastachari number 1’ (corrupted number 1) comment made on the former Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi. In an election rally in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday, PM Modi had said that former PM Rajiv Gandhi’s life ended as ‘Bhrastachari Number 1’.

PM Modi, while addressing an election rally in UP, had stated that Rahul Gandhi’s father was hailed by his loyal courtiers as ‘Mr Clean’ but his life ended as ‘Bhrashtrachari number 1’.

In a letter dated May 5, the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee said that comments made by PM Modi not only violate the Model Code of Conduct but is also an insult to the Barat Ratna awardee Rajiv Gandhi. The Committee has asked strict action against PM Modi and demanded the EC to bar him from speaking at the public rallies.

It is, however, ironic that the demand to act against PM Modi filed by the Congress Uttar Pradesh Committee comes as the Congress National president Rahul Gandhi continues to attack the sitting PM Modi with his ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ jibes without having any substantiated evidence to back his claims.

The comments made by PM Modi were apparently in reference to the murky Bofors deal, in which late PM Rajiv Gandhi was accused of receiving kickbacks from the Swedish Manufacturer, Bofors, for the sale of artillery guns to India. Rajiv Gandhi was also accused of presiding over the Sikh Genocide in 1984 and later justifying the horrible atrocity with his statements. He was assassinated by one of the LTTE cadres in 1991.
