The Commission cited Yogi’s April 19 speech in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal where he spoke against Muslims while addressing voters, saying: “Do you want to keep the nations in hands of anti-nationals, sons of Babur…? Do you want to give the reigns in the hands of opponents of Bajarangbali?”

 

Yogi Adityanath surrounds with controversy for communal remarks against Muslims:

 

Last month, the EC had taken action against Yogi for making communal remarks in Meerut and barred him from campaigning for 72 hours.

Reminding Yogi of the action, Commission in the notice said it is prima facie of the opinion that he violated the MCC by making impugned statements in Sambhal.

Your explanation shall be submitted within 24 hours of receipt of this notice, failing which the Commission shall take a decision without further reference to you,” reads the notice.
