#Kolkata: The commission had issued a notice for making offensive remarks on the name of the Chief Minister. Shuvendu Adhikari also answered accordingly. But the commission has made it clear that the agency is not happy with his explanation. Subhendu Adhikari has also been instructed to refrain from such comments as long as the Model Code of Conduct exists.
In the Nandigram episode, Shuvendu Adhikari incarnated in another incarnation. From the address to the political commentary, he used to mean that polarization is his card. Mamata Banerjee, on the other hand, was like Shuvendu, she was thinking of winning in Nandigram by looking at the votes of the minority community. In the midst of this pressure, Shuvendu Adhikari addressed Mamata Banerjee in offensive language. With this, the commission show-cause him on 9 April.
Shuvendu wrote in response to the show-cause, he believes in a fair election process. He also said he did not want to personally attack anyone. He wrote that he did not resort to communalism in any way to get votes. He also said that he would rely on democratic institutions like the commission. Needless to say, the commission was not satisfied. However, the commission did not take any action. He is being released after warning him.
It is to be noted that not only Shuvendui, but other BJP leaders have also come under the wrath of the commission. Rahul Sinha has been banned for two days for making controversial remarks in the Shitalkuchi case. He will not be able to preach for the next two days. On the other hand, the commission has also sent an explanation to the BJP state president for his comments on Shitalkuchi. The commission’s letter also said it would take action against him if he did not respond.
