BJP wants Congress poll symbol cancelled over Rahul's remark
The BJP on Friday lodged a complaint with the Election Commission of Uttar Pradesh against Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi following his claims of seeing party’s symbol in the photos of gods and saints.

BJP delegation led by former MLC Shayam Nandan Singh alleged that Rahul has violated the Model Code of Conduct by "co-relating the Congress election symbol with religious figures".

The delegation which also handed over a video footage of Rahul Gandh's speech, alleged that the comments were against the recent Supreme Court's order. The delegation also demanded disqualification the Congress.

"Rahul Gandhi's behaviour is not only violative of the apex court's orders but also against section 123 (3) of Representation of the People's Act 1951," they said. Last week, the Supreme Court had ordered not to seek votes in the name of religion or caste.
