BJP on Monday came under attack from political parties over controversial "revenge" remarks by Narendra Modi`s close aide Amit Shah in riot affected western UP districts, with Congress demanding that he be arrested and banned from campaigning for "stoking communal fire".
BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi`s close aide and the party`s in-charge of UP Amit Shah will on Tuesday reply to the Election Commission notice issued to him in connection with the alleged hate speech made by him in the riot-hit Muzaffarnagar recently.
In what is likely to spell more trouble for BJP leader and the party`s in-charge of Uttar Pradesh Amit Shah, the Election Commission on Monday took cognizance of the alleged hate speech made by him in the riot-hit Muzaffarnagar recently and issued a notice to him in this regard.
BJP on Sunday hit out at the Congress, SP and BSP saying that the FIR against Narendra Modi`s aide Amit Shah was done as a calculated design to polarise election scenario in UP and is motivated by votebank politics.
Slamming Narendra Modi`s aide Amit Shah`s controversial "revenge" remark in Uttar Pradesh, Congress on Sturday rejected BJP`s defence of it as "flagrant crude defence and justification of communalism" and accused it of mastering the art of "hypocrisy".
