New Delhi: Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Friday moved
the Election Commission seeking a ban on Congress and its
leaders for allegedly wooing voters in the name of religion
and caste.
A delegation of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) met the
Election Commission to thank it for holding the implementation
of sub-quota reservation in the five election-bound states.

The delegation headed by its vice president Om Prakash
Singhal said they have asked the EC to ban Congress for wooing
Muslim voters and "for dividing the country on religious
lines".

"We have appealed EC to ban Congress and stop its leaders
from wooing voters in the name of religion and caste," the
delegation stated.
After meeting the EC, the media chief of VHP Delhi said
that they had also brought to the notice of the poll body
regarding different statements of Congress leaders on Batla
House encounter and increase in Muslim quota in their election
speeches.
