New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party moved the state Election Commission against Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for hurting religious sentiments on people following his claims of seeing party’s symbol in the photos of gods and saints.

Citing Supreme Court’s order which outlaws seeking votes in the name of religion or caste, a BJP delegation led by former Member of Legislative Council Shayam Nandan Singh, met the Chief Electoral officer (CEO) of the state, T Venktesh, and requested him to take action against the Gandhi and his party.

The delegation has also handed over a video footage of Rahul Gandh’s speech and alleged that the comments were against the recent Supreme Court’s order.

“Rahul Gandhi’s behaviour is not only violative of the apex court’s orders but also against section 123 (3) of Representation of the People’s Act 1951," said Singh and the delegation also demanded disqualification of the Congress.

It may be recalled that Rahul on Wednesday last had stated at a party function that he found his party’s symbol i.e. Hand or palm in the images of gods.
