ECI issues notice to BJP's Dilip Ghosh, Cong' Supriya Shrinate over controversial remarks

PTC News Desk: The Election Commission on Wednesday issued show-cause notices to Congress leader Supriya Shrinate and Bharatiya Janata Party's Dilip Ghosh for making "derogatory" remarks against women.

Earlier, Dilip Ghosh sparked controversy after making derogatory remarks against Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, while Supriya Shrinate made a controversial statement about actor Kangana Ranaut, the BJP's nominee for Himachal's Mandi Lok Sabha seat.


The poll body in its notice stated, "... on careful examination, the comment(s) have been found to be 'undignified and in bad taste', and to be prima facie violative of provisions of the Model Code of Conduct..."

ECI has granted Shrinate and Ghosh till 5 pm Friday to explain why action should not be taken against them. "In the event of no response... it will be presumed you have nothing to say..." it added.
