72-hr ban on campaigning 'soft' punishment for Yogi: IUML

72-hr ban on campaigning 'soft' punishment for Yogi: IUML

New Delhi, Apr 15 (UNI) While terming as 'too soft a punishment,' the Election Commission's order to ban Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath from campaigning for 72 hours for his 'communal ' remarks, the Indian Union Muslim League on Monday said it would move the Supreme Court, to examine the EC order in detail.

'While we welcome the EC order, a strong condemnation and a 72 hours ban to campaign is too soft a punishment. The order does not even talk about the hate campaign run by the troll army of BJP or banning their social media accounts,' Khorrum Anis Omer, National Secretary of IUML, said in a statement here.

While noting that the order against Mr Adityanath had come in the wake of Monday's SC observation, he said it is contemplating to approach the apex court, for examining the EC order in detail.

'We feel that this order has come in the wake of today's SC observation. When the SC asked, If the EC is toothless, the EC advocate told the court that they are powerless. The SC shall too examine the powers of EC tomorrow, as per their order.

'IUML is also contemplating to take this matter to the Supreme Court, examining the EC order in detail,' the National Secretary of IUML said.

IUML is also planning to file a complaint against BJP chief Amit Shah for calling Kerala a Pakistani territory.

'We are also planning to file a complaint against Mr Amit Shah for calling Kerala a Pakistani territory,' he said.

IUML had filed a complaint to the EC about Mr Adityanath, calling the organisation a 'green virus' on April 5, with a copy to the CEO, Kerala.

The IUML again filed a reminder to EC on April 12, as they claimed that the EC was sitting on their complaint.

The EC on Monday had banned Mr Adityanath from campaigning for 72 hours, for his 'communal ' remarks.
