West Bengal Assembly Elections: ECI issues show-cause notice to Trinamool's Rezzak Mollah again

Kolkata: The Election Commission on Wednesday issued show-cause notice to Trinamool Congress candidate Abdur Rezzak Mollah over his "objectionable" remarks against the BJP's actress-turned poll contestant Roopa Ganguly, an official said.

"Such comments should not have been made. The Commission has issued a show-cause notice to Mollah," an EC official said.

Terming it "objectionable", the BJP on Wednesday urged the poll watchdog to take action against Mollah, who was expelled from the CPI-M in 2014 for "anti-party activities".

"Before joining the Trinamool, he had made offensive remarks against the chief minister (Mamata Banerjee) as well," said BJP leader Jay Prakash Majumdar.

Mollah had been censured and show-caused earlier by the poll panel for some of his utterances.

On Wednesday, Mollah stoked another controversy when he cast aspersions on actress-turned-BJP leader Roopa Ganguly's character and expressed doubts on her artistic abilities.

His comments drew the ire of the opposition parties.

In sharp criticism of the "unparliamentary" remark, Congress leader Deepa Das Munshi said the Trinamool encourages such comments.

"There is line which should be drawn in politics. I strongly condemn it," she said.
