       After revoking “star campaigner” status of Congress leader Kamal Nath for repeated violations of the model code during the campaign for the by-polls in 28 assembly seats in Madhya Pradesh, the Election Commission on Friday (October 30) barred MP Minister Mohan Yadav from holding any public meetings, processions, rallies, roadshows, interviews, and public utterances in media, in connection with ongoing elections for one day-Oct 31 (Saturday), for use of ‘intemperate language’

       The EC reprimanded the MP minister for using “intemperate language transgressing the limits of decency”. Notably, 28 seats will go for bypolls on November 3 for which canvassing is on in the state. The campaigning ends on November 1 evening. In its order, the poll panel said it was not satisfied with Yadav’s response to its notice, adding “The Commission is satisfied that the statements therein amount to use of intemperate language transgressing the limit of decency.”
