New Delhi: The Election Commission has barred Congress leader Randeep Surjewala from campaigning for the upcoming elections for 48 hours starting 6 pm on Tuesday (today) for his remarks on BJP MP and candidate Hema Malini.

“The Commission, under Article 324 of the Constitution of India and all other powers enabling in this behalf, bars him from holding any public meetings, public processions, public rallies, roadshows and interviews, public utterances in media (print, electronic, social media), etc. in connection with the ongoing elections for 48 hours from 6 pm on 16th April 2024 (Tuesday),” the Election Commission said.


Earlier this month, the senior Congress leader was sent a show-cause notice by the Election Commission for his comments on BJP’s Mathura MP Hema Malini. The poll body called his remarks “undignified, vulgar, and uncivilized”.
