UP CEO seeks report on CM Adityanath’s ‘Modi’s Army’ remarks
Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Electoral Officer on late Monday sought a report from Ghaziabad District Magistrate on Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s remarks, describing the armed forces as “Modiji ki Sena” or “Modi’s Army” at a political rally in Ghaziabad on Sunday. The remarks drew severe criticism from the Opposition parties.
“Taking cognisance of the issue, the State CEO has asked for a report from the District Election Officer [the District Magistrate] by Tuesday noon,” said the Election Commission.
In his speech, CM Adityanath had accused Congress of serving ‘biryani’ to terrorists and who are now served with ‘golis and golas (bullets and bombs)’ by PM Modi. He also said Congress leaders used “Ji” for terrorists like Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar but under the Prime Minister’s leadership, the BJP-led government was destroying their camps.
