BJP’s Navneet Rana Booked For Violating MCC

The Shadnagar police filed a case against BJP candidate Navneet Rana on Friday.  Her statement came during a recent election campaign of BJP’s Hyderabad candidate Madhavi Lata, saying that voting for Congress is like supporting Pakistan. This led to a complaint by election supervising officials. 

Rana is contesting on a BJP ticket from the Amravati Parliament constituency in Maharashtra. Officials stated that Rana’s remarks go against the Model Code of Conduct (MCC), which is in place for the Lok Sabha elections.

“We got a complaint from the FST flying squad, EC, for Violation of Rules. The complaint was given yesterday. Krishna Mohan, FST of EC, who is on election duty, has made a complaint on the comment ‘If voted for Rahul Gandhi, the vote goes to Pakistan,” the police added. They further stated that the case has been filed under section 188 of the Indian Penal Code.

Well, it’s not just about BJP’s Navneet Rana commenting Congress as an anti-Hindu and pro-Pakistan party. BJP’s political ad in the Marathi language in a newspaper caught an eye where it was written: where should your vote lead to celebration, India or Pakistan? My only simple question is, does the EC model code of conduct allow an ad like this? And if not, why has the EC not taken any action against it?

Returning to Navneet Rana on Thursday, Rana strongly criticized AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi and his brother Akbaruddin. She stated, “If the police were not on duty for even 15 seconds, the brothers would be clueless about their whereabouts.” These remarks faced intense backlash from Telangana Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy and AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi. Without naming her, Reddy urged election officials to take legal action and arrest the Parliament member who made such provocative statements.

He added she needs to be arrested. I’m asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Minister Amit Shah – do you stand by your BJP leader’s statement that she could cause harm to millions in just 15 seconds? If not, remove her from the party immediately and advise all BJP leaders to refrain from making such speeches.
