EC reprimands BJP's Vijayvargiya for 'chunnu-munnu' remark

Oct 30, 2020 20:48 IST

The Election Commission on Friday said the "chunnu-munnu" remarks made by BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya against Congress' Digvijaya Singh and Kamal Nath were in violation of the poll code provisions and advised him not to use "any such word" in his public utterances during the election period. In reply to the notice issued to him by the poll panel, the politician has submitted that the context of his remark has been misunderstood and the complaint is an election driven narrative of the Congress party to change the course of the election. 

Vijayvarigya had made the remark during an election rally in Indore on October 14 when he was campaigning for the bypolls to 28 Madhya Pradesh Assembly seats that will be held on November 3.
