BJP’s campaign amounts to violation of model code, says Ivan D’Souza

Chief Whip of the Government in Legislative Council Ivan D’Souza came down heavily on an advertisement of the BJP that states, “Modi sarkar punishes child rapists with death penalty.. Siddha sarakara still asleep....” and said that the Criminal Law (Amendment) Ordinance that provided stringent punishment for the rapist, is applicable to the BJP.

As many as 22 BJP leaders including MLAs in the country are facing charges of sexual assault. “The BJP has been engaged in false propaganda against the Congress-led government in Karnataka. In fact, after the Nirbhaya incident, the Karnataka government had set up an expert committee to suggest amendments to the law related to sexual assault cases and enhancement of punishment for the crime.

How many BJP-ruling states have taken up such an initiative?” he asked. Stating that “Namma BJP namma mane” campaign of the BJP amounts to violation of model code, he said the EC should initiate action. “Houses here belong to the voters and not to the BJP. As part of ‘Namma BJP namma mane’ campaign, posters preventing Congress from entering the houses have come up in a few places.” He said that, “During the door-to-door campaign of the BJP, the Congress will take up the issue of false promises made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the election.”
