EC Notices To Harish Rao, Revanth Reddy, Others

Coming down harshly on the political leaders for violating the model code of conduct, EC serves notices to political leaders from various parties
Hyderabad | 9th November 2018
Expressing displeasure at the abusive language being used by some political leaders in some vernacular TV channel debates in poll-bound Telangana, the Election Commission of India served notices to the leaders of both the ruling party and the opposition parties.

The EC served notices on TRS leader T Harish Rao, Congress leaders A Revanth Reddy and R V Prathap Reddy, and TDP leader R Prakash Reddy, and sought replies in two days from them.

The EC also warned of serious action if political actors failed to comply with the election model code of conduct and continued to use abusive language.

Speaking at a press conference at the Secretariat, Telangana Chief Election Officer Rajat Kumar said that indulging in harsh language and aiming personal abuse against political opponents was against the model code of conduct. He added that some of the debates in some TV channels were so acrimonious that the people were unable to watch them.

The CEO also instructed the media to control the participants during debates among political leaders.

The CEO also stated that action would be taken against politicians who failed to disclose any criminal antecedents to the EC and the media as mandated.
