In a recent turn of events, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has filed a complaint against Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP) chairperson Sonia Gandhi in the Election Commission.
The complaint was made after Sonia Gandhi held a rally in Hubli, Karnataka, on 6th May, and the Congress party tweeted on its social media handle about Sonia Gandhi’s message to the people of Karnataka.
The BJP delegation, led by Union ministers Bhupendra Yadav, Jitendra Singh, and party leader Anil Baluni, met the Election Commission on Monday to demand action against Sonia Gandhi for her statement.
The BJP has accused Sonia Gandhi of attempting to destabilize the credibility, sovereignty, and integrity of Karnataka by claiming that the Congress party would never let these values come under fire.
Speaking about the issue, BJP leader Tarun Chugh clarified that “Sovereign is a nation, not a state.” He emphasized that Sonia Gandhi’s statement could be seen as an attack on the sovereignty and integrity of the country.
The BJP delegation has urged the Election Commission to take immediate action against Sonia Gandhi and the Congress party for their alleged violation of the Model Code of Conduct.
The BJP leaders have accused the Congress party of spreading false and baseless propaganda to influence the voters.
The Election Commission has yet to respond to the BJP’s complaint. However, the incident has once again highlighted the intense political rivalry between the two parties in the state of Karnataka.
With the state assembly elections just around the corner, the BJP and Congress are leaving no stone unturned to secure a victory.
