Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Thursday got a clean chit by the district election office in Indore on his comaring Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a wife who pretends to work.
According to the report, The office said that Sidhu's remark did not violate the model code of conduct.
BJP took cognizance of the statement and lodged a complaint. A complaint was lodged by Neeraj Kumar of Delhi in this connection. EC had sent the complaint to CEO, who had asked the district returning officer of Indore to submit a report after inquiry. Indore returning officer submitted the report on Wednesday giving Sidhu a clean chit explaining that it was a comment on working of a government and not a personal remark against a person.
Over the weekend, Sidhu had relentlessly attacked PM Modi while campaigning in Indore and compared the Prime Minister to a "bride who only pretends to work." Taking dig at PM he had said, "Modi ji uss dulhan ki tarah hain jo roti kum baelti hai aur chudiyaan zada khankati hai taaki mohalle walon ko yeh pata chale ki woh kaam kar rahi hai. Bas yahi hua hai Modi sarkaar mein (Modi ji is like the bride who makes less chapattis but makes noise with her bangles so that neighbours know she is working. This is what happened during Modi government.”
