Weeks after Union Minister Maneka Gandhi threatened to neglect places in Sultanpur that do not vote for her en masse in the Lok Sabha polls, the Election Commission today warned her against making remarks aimed at intimidating or bribing voters in the constituency.
The election body ruled that the remarks were in violation of the Model Code of Conduct. On April 15, the BJP candidate had faced a 48-hour ban from campaigning for allegedly warning the Muslim community in Sultanpur that she will not work for those who fail to vote for her.
The Election Commission cited the video recording of a speech delivered by Maneka Gandhi at Sultanpur's Sarkoda village two weeks ago in its order issued today.
