Ban Shah from Bihar: Oppn to EC

Incensed at BJP president Amit Shah’s “firecrackers in Pakistan’ remark, leaders of the Congress and the JD (U) approached the Election Commission seeking a ban on his entry into Bihar till the Assembly elections are over.

Leaders of the Congress and the JD (U) met Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi with a demand that a case be registered against “habitual conspirator” Shah and accused him of vitiating the electoral process by “promoting communal tension”.

“A case should be registered against him (Shah) and he should be barred from entering Bihar till the poll process is over. He is a habitual conspirator. He was earlier also barred from entering Gujarat by the court,” JD(U) general secretary K C Tyagi told reporters after meeting the EC.

He was accompanied by Congress leaders Randeep Singh Surjewala and Ajoy Kumar.

At the AICC briefing, Congress spokesperson R P N Singh hit back at Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying “the grand alliance will definitely celebrate Diwali on November 8 (results of the elections) and so will senior leaders of the BJP because BJP is going to lose badly in Bihar.”
