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.

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.

When Husband Jailed, Wife Made CM: Nitish’s Dig At RJD

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.

Nitish Kumar

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.
