Showcause Notice Served to BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj : EC

The Election Commission has served showcause notice to BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj for his population control comments.

Sakshi Maharaj on last Friday had stirred a fresh controversy by holding Muslims responsible for population boom.”Those with four spouses and 40 kids are responsible for the population increase in the nation. Hindus are not responsible for the increase in population,” he said in survey bound Uttar Pradesh.

The Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of Uttar Pradesh has looked for a report from the district administration on the purportedly common comments that BJP MP from Unnao made at a religious occasion in Meerut.

Additionally, the Meerut Police have lodged an FIR against the MP on charges of promoting enmity between groups on grounds of religion and caste
