Chennai: DMK has suffered a major setback amid Tamil Nadu assembly elections. In a disputed statement, the Election Commission took action against DMK leader A Raja and prohibited campaigning for 48 hours. Earlier, the Election Commission (EC) had said that Raj’s statement was not only derogatory but also demolished the mother’s mother, which is a violation of the code of conduct.
On March 30, the Election Commission expressed dissatisfaction over a king’s reply and sentenced him. The king was supposed to file an answer by 6 pm on 31 March. But he asked for more relief. The Commission said that it could not provide more relief. Subsequently, based on the documents, evidence and other material provided, the Commission ruled. DMK MP A Raja had made derogatory remarks on Tamil Nadu CM K Palaniswami, saying that he (Palaniswami) was born wrongly. A king praised DMK chief MK Stalin for being born on the right track, while Tamil Nadu’s current CM Palaniswami is born incorrectly.
There was a lot of ruckus about the statement. On the basis of the evidence, the Commission has said that Raja’s statement is not only derogatory, but also the affection of the mother who opposes the model code of conduct. The commission then sought answers from A. Raja.
