    Congress moves Election Commission against KejriwalThe Congress on Friday approached the Delhi Election Commission and filed a complaint against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accusing him of giving communal and provocative statement in a bid to attract voters on communal lines and demanded the poll panel to bar him from campaigning.

    A delegation of the Delhi Congress led by former east Delhi MP Sandeep Dikshit met the Chief Electoral Officer at his Kashmere gate office in central Delhi.

    Speaking to media, Dikshit said, “We have submitted a memorandum to the Chief Electoral Officer, drawing his attention to Kejriwal’s televised interview in which he has asked the Muslim voters not to vote for the Congress in the Lok Sabha elections as the party was not getting a single Hindu vote.

    He said: “Kejriwal’s statement is highly communal and illegal in nature, and is intended to divide the Hindu and Muslim votes, and attract the voters along communal lines.

    Dikshit said that the party delegation has asked the poll panel “to take cognizance of Kejriwal’s highly explosive statement and he should be banned from the election campaign”.
