Congress on Monday said it will lodge complaint with the Election Commission against Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his ‘deplorable statement’ during a rally in Fatehpur during the campaign for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections 2017.

Congress on Monday said it will lodge complaint with the Election Commission against Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his ‘deplorable statement’ during a rally in Fatehpur during the campaign for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections 2017. “Congress to file complaint with Election Commission, against PM Modi, over highly deplorable statement in Fatehpur rally,” party secretary of Legal and Human Rights Cell K C Mittal told ANI.

PM Modi had lambasted the SP government for its “failure “to maintain law and order in Uttar Pradesh, saying ‘goonda raj’ was prevailing there and even the Supreme Court has had to intervene to get a minister booked in an alleged rape case.

“The SC had to intervene to get the FIR registered against Gayatri Prasad Prajapati. ‘Goonda raj’ is prevailing all over UP and police stations have become Samajwadi Party office,” Modi said at an election rally here.

With the apex court breathing down its neck, UP Police yesterday filed an FIR against the tainted minister in connection with cases of alleged gangrape and attempt to rape a woman and her minor daughter.

“The glow has disappeared from Akhilesh Yadav’s face, his voice has become feeble, he is afraid and looking for right words while talking to media,” he said, adding that the SP chief has “accepted that he has lost the game”.

“Why is the policing system so inefficient in UP? Why are complaints not registered? What work culture is it? SP is least concerned about improving law and order situation in UP. I urge people to elect a government that will ensure safety of people,” he said, putting SP government on the dock.

Modi referred to the CM’s rally to campaign for Prajapati and wondered whether “the (Cong-SP) alliance was as holy as Gayatri.”

Prajapati, who is contesting as a candidate of the alliance in the prestigeous Amethi constituency, was sacked by Akhilesh from his cabinet in 2016 but later reinstated in the council of ministers sans the lucrative mining portfolio.

Terming SP’s alliance with Congress as an “insult” of socialist leader Ram Manohar Lohia, he said “SP has insulted Lohia by forging alliance with the Congress.”

In a jibe at Rahul Gandhi without taking his name for forging alliance with SP, Modi said, “Those born with silver spoon in mouth have realised that the situation is not in their favour on the ground. After ’27 saal, UP behal’ slogan, Congress was compelled to form alliance with SP because of this reason.”

The Prime Minister also said development has been “in exile for 10 years” in Uttar Pradesh.
