Election Commission clears Gujarat BJP advertisement targeting Rahul Gandhi with word 'Yuvraj'

Gujarat elections 2017 Know your constituency Bhiloda

Top Congress leadership will on Friday discuss and finalise its possible candidates for the Gujarat Assembly elections at a meeting of its Central Election Committee.

The BJP replaced this word with "Yuvraj" after which the ad got clearance from the state Election Commission. Congress is the only party that is posing a threat to BJP.

In the 49-second video which is set at a grocery store, a voice says "Sir, Sir.", followed by the response from the shop owner's assistant who says, "Yuvraj has come".

Prime Minister Modi, Party chief Amit Shah, state Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, and other office bearers have reached the party headquarters for the CEC meeting on Wednesday evening.

Though the EC barred BJP from using the word "pappu" in advertisement, BJP leaders and supporters had also been calling the Vice president in social media slurs - like "yuvraj" or "shahzada".

However the BJP said the script of that advertisement did not link the word to any individual. Asked whether the EC has barred BJP from using the word Pappu in the promotional video, Gujarat's Chief Electoral Officer B B Swain said, "This is a privilege information between the political party (concerned) and the Media Certification and Monitoring Committee (MCMC) of the EC".

The elections in Gujarat will be held in two phases on December 9 and 14. However, they raised an objection to the word "Pappu", saying it is derogatory.

He said the party will replace the word and submit a new script for approval from the EC.
