BJP goes to EC over ‘nalayak’ barb at PM Modi | Karnataka Election News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: BJP on Tuesday raised with the Election Commission the issue of Congress promising tough action against Bajrang Dal and its member Priyank Kharge calling PM Narendra Modi ‘nalayak beta’ as it accused the opposition party of resorting to politics of appeasement and division in Karnataka.
Union minister Piyush Goyal, who led the BJP delegation to the EC, defended Bajrang Dal as an outfit devoted to Lord Hanuman and serving people, and said Congress’ attack on it was “shameful”.
Asked if the party raised the issue before EC, he said every ‘objectionable’ remark and action of Congress aimed at dividing the society was taken up. Party sources said the Bajrang Dal issue was raised orally before EC.
