The Election Commission sent a notice to Trinamool Congress leader Sujata Mondal Khan for her alleged comments on planned castes and gave her 24 hours to keep things clear.
The notice said she should also explain why her “campaign star” status should not be withdrawn.
The BJP had moved the voting panel with a complaint against Ms Khan, he said.
According to part of his words reproduced in the notice, the leader of the TMC would have said that “as there is a shortage of resources in the families of the castes of the calendar, no matter how much, Mamata Bandyopadhyay has helped them, the shortage will not go away” .
“As there is a saying, some are actually beggars and some are beggars by nature. The calendar castes here are beggars by nature, and despite Mamata Bandyopadhyay (CM Mamata Banerjee) helping them so much, they were still sold to BJP for a small amount and are now torturing us, “according to Ms. Khan’s remarks reproduced in the notice. The opinion says the polling committee found his remarks in violation of the Model Code and the provisions of the Indian Penal Code.
