New Delhi: The Election Commission has banned Assam BJP leader Hemant Biswa Sarma from campaigning for 48 hours. In fact, the Commission has taken this order regarding the statement made by Sarma on BPF leader Hagrama Mohilary. Now seeing this, the opposition has got another chance to target the government. Recently, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said, "Similar restrictions should be imposed on PM Modi, Amit Shah, and JP Nadda".
Today, Randeep Surjewala said in a statement, "The Election Commission has banned the election campaign of Hemant Biswa Sarma for 48 hours. This shows that the BJP is losing elections in Assam and that is why it is resorting to stalking. We urge the Commission that for free and fair elections a similar ban should also be imposed on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Sarbananda Sonowal, and JP Nadda, which are being featured in the newspaper advertisements in Assam".
