Bhopal: The Election Commission of India today filed and First Information Report (FIR) against Bhartiya Janata Party controversial spokesperson Sambit Patra violation of model code of conduct during Madhya Pradesh elections.

The Congress has recently formed the government in Madhya Pradesh after defeating the BJP and ending its 15 years of government. Last month, the controversial BJP spokesperson had found his name included in the FIR filed by the Election Commission for poll code violation.

Madhya Pradesh CEO VL Kantha Rao had told news agency that Patra had been named as an accused in the FIR.

Patra had allegedly violated the poll code by holding a press conference in front of a commercial building in MP Nagar area of Bhopal, where he slammed Congress President Rahul Gandhi on the National Herald case.

The opposition Congress had wasted no time in approaching the poll body to claim that Patra’s presser was organised without requisite permissions and that too on public property (road).

Patra has become synonymous to antics and shenanigans in the recent time as his comments have frequently courted controversy. In a veiled jibe at Patra, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, according to news agency ANI, had recently said, “There’s a spokesperson who has responsibility to speak for party officially, but there are a few ppl in party(BJP) who when they speak to media, stir controversy. One shouldn’t speak such things that lead to controversy; it adversely affects party’s image.”

The BJP lost all three states, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, to the Congress in the recently concluded assembly elections.

There were also reports that the BJP had removed Patra from its list of spokespersons to avoid further embarrassment ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. However, the party had later clarified that there was no truth in these reports.

Patra has continued to make TV appearances in the last few days. His aggressive tone has, however, given way to more dignified response these days.

  • This day in 1907, Bhagat Singh was born in Banga village of Lyallpur district of undivided Punjab province.
  • “He’ll always remain a source of inspiration for us,” Amit Shah said on Twitter.
  • On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also paid his tributes to the revolutionary in his 69th ‘Mann ki Baat’ episode.

Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday paid tribute to Shaheed Bhagat Singh on his 113th birth anniversary. He expressed his gratitude to the revolutionary freedom fighter for giving a new direction to the Indian freedom struggle and making huge sacrifices to awaken the resolve of independence among the youth of the country. “He’ll always remain a source of inspiration for us,” Amit Shah said on Twitter.

It was on this day in 1907, Bhagat Singh was born in Banga village of Lyallpur district of undivided Punjab province. He was a charismatic Indian socialist revolutionary whose two acts of dramatic violence against the British in India and execution at the age of 23 made him a folk hero of the Indian Independence movement. Bhagat Singh was hanged in the Lahore jail along with Shivaram Hari Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar on March 23, 1931.

Meanwhile, as the nation pays tributes to Bhagat Singh, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh will stage a sit-in protest against the Farm Acts on Monday at Khatkar Kalan, the ancestral village of Bhagat Singh. Former Uttarakhand chief minister and Congress general secretary Harish Rawat will also be visiting Punjab for the first time since taking charge of state affairs.
