Stalin gets notice for remarks on Jayalalithaa
AIADK had on April 8 filed a complaint with the Election Commission against Stalin.
New Delhi: Election Commission on Sunday issued notice to Tamil Nadu Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin for allegedly making personal attacks on AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa.
The Commission has asked Stalin to submit his reply by Monday evening, a senior EC official said.
"The Commission has issued a notice to Stalin for making personal attack on Ms Jayalalithaa in violation of the Model Code of Conduct," the official said.
AIADK had on April 8 filed a complaint with the Election Commission against Stalin who had allegedly made some remarks about the marital status of Jayalalithaa.
Stalin's remark was "malicious and was beyond all limits of decency", the complaint, filed a day after the EC issued a notice to Jayalalithaa for allegedly making personal remarks against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, said.
AIADMK Rajya Sabha member P H Manoj Pandian in a written compliant to Tamil Nadu Chief Electoral Officer, said Stalin made "derogatory and defamatory remarks" against Jayalalithaa in Namakkal during a campaign for the April 13 Assembly polls.
Quoting Stalin from a Tamil daily as saying that the AIADMK chief was not married and so was not interested in funding other women's weddings, Pandian said it was "no way connected with the public activities of the leader."
