The Election Commission on Monday sought a “detailed report” from the chief electoral officer of Madhya Pradesh on Congress leader Kamal Nath’s remarks against a woman candidate during a poll rally in the state.

Addressing a poll meeting on Sunday in Gwalior’s Dabra town where the BJP has fielded Imarti Devi, Nath said the Congress candidate was a “simple person” unlike the opponent who was an “item”.

Imarti Devi and 21 other MLAs loyal to Jyotiraditya Scindia had resigned from the Congress and the state assembly and joined the BJP in March, in the process bringing down the Nath government.

“Based on the report received from the chief electoral officer of MP, we have asked for a detailed report. It would be with the Commission on Tuesday. Based on it, the Commission would take a view,” said a senior EC functionary.

The National Commission for Women had also forwarded the matter to the Election Commission for necessary action.

“By the time we received reference from NCW, we had already sought a detailed report from CEO, Madhya Pradesh,” the EC official said.

Bypolls to 28 Madhya Pradesh assembly seats will be held on November 3 and the counting of votes will take place on November 10.

Aurangabad (Bihar): Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday took a dig at the RJD leadership, and said — without taking names — that when ‘husband’ went to jail his ‘wife’ was made the Chief Minister in the past.

He was obviously referring to Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Lalu Prasad and his wife Rabri Devi.

Nitish, who leads the Janata Dal-United, also claimed that law and order during the earlier RJD rule was poor.

“Everyone knows what all happened during the rule of husband and wife. All kinds of crimes were reported. People used to desist from venturing out as evening hours approached. But when we got a chance to serve the people, we carried out developmental works in all sectors,” the Chief Minister said while addressing public rallies in Rafiganj in Aurangabad district and Sherghati in Gaya district.

“When the wife (Rabri) was made the Chief Minister, nothing was done for the welfare of women. But during our rule, we ensured 50 per cent reservation for women in rural local bodies,” the JD-U leader claimed.

He said that no section of society had been ignored during his rule and special developmental works taken up for those pushed to the margins of society.

“Today, not only the country but the whole world is taking note of works done in Bihar, but some people are busy finding faults,” he remarked.

Nitish also said that his government also worked for the welfare of minority communities without discrimination, apart from women empowerment.

Patna, Oct 19 : After Kashmiri militants, Article 370, Left extremism and Jinnah, the Indian Ocean is the latest to enter the political war of words in Bihar at a time when the campaign for the Assembly polls is in full swing.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Lalu Prasad Yadav on Monday attacked Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and asked him: “Do we now have to send the Indian Ocean for the development of Bihar?”

Lalu posted a cartoon and a statement in the Bhojpuri language on social media to slam Nitish for his statement that big industries had not come in Bihar as it was not located in a coastal area.

While giving a clarification on the lack of jobs in Bihar, Nitish Kumar, during a virtual rally in the second week of October had said that although the state was on the development path, big industries had not come here as it is not situated near a sea coast. Industrialists generally prefer coastal areas to establish industries, he said.

In the cartoon posted by Lalu, a person is asking a group of people carrying water why they were carrying it, was there a fire somewhere? In reply the water-carriers say they are carrying sea water as Nitish Kumar is saying bring the ocean to Bihar for industries to be established.

“You cannot hide the failure of 15 years by making such excuses,” Lalu said in his tweet.

Lalu Prasad asked Nitish Kumar to go home and relax as you are tired now.

Lalu Prasad is currently in Ranchi jail after he was convicted in the fodder scam. The tweet is posted on his Twitter handle @laluprasadrjd.

The JDU-BJP government is facing the heat after RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav announced that the RJD will provide 10 lakh government jobs to the youths of Bihar in the first cabinet meeting if his party comes to power.
