The Election Commission of India

Attention: Shri V.S. Sampath, Chief Election Commissioner

Enclosed is a news item that appeared in Dainik Bhaskar of date line 02.05.2014 (today) along with a CD of the election speech made by Shri Rahul Gandhi, Vice President of the Congress Party at Solan (H.P.). He is reported to have observed that “if BJP comes to power 22000 people will be killed”. This is a threat of serious dimensions made by a highly placed Congress leader, which should not be taken lightly by the ECI. One is at a wit’s end to comprehend how such an accurate figure has been arrived at by this contemporary Nostradamus. Judging by his past utterances during the Muzaffarnagar riots, there is a possibility that he has contacts with Intelligence Agencies who feed him with such forecasts. If so, the Nation has got a right to be informed of such a grim prospect. We would request the Hon’ble Election Commission to issue a notice to him, requesting him to share the information with them (since this observation has been made in the course of a campaign speech). If he is not able to convince the Commission about the veracity of the content of his speech, the Commission may like to suitably deal with him for a serious violation of the Model Code of Conduct which prohibits “unverified allegations or distortions” (Para 1-General Conduct–(2) of the Model Code of Conduct).
