Election Commission cautioned Telangana CM for communal remarks

Vastavam web: The Election Commission Friday “cautioned” Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao for his communal remarks and asked him to be more careful in the future.

In an order issued Friday, the EC said, it is of the view that by delivering such speeches, Rao has violated the provisions of model code, which specifies that no political party or candidate shall indulge in any activity which may aggravate existing differences, or create mutual hatred or cause tension between different castes and communities. The Commission had on April 10 issued him a show cause notice, finding him prima facie guilty of passing derogatory remarks against Hindus while addressing an election rally in Karimnagar in March.
