The Chief Electoral Office in Rajasthan has written to the Election Commission of India (ECI) demanding further action into the issue of Loktantrik Janata Dal leader Sharad Yadav allegedly insulting former chief minister Vasundhara Raje.
The Rajasthan BJP had filed a complaint in the issue.
In an election rally in Alwar, Mr. Yadav had allegedly said that Ms. Raje had become fat and required rest. A video of Mr. Yadav’s alleged comments was viral on social media.
Ms. Raje said she felt insulted with Mr. Yadav’s alleged remarks.
“I feel insulted. This is an insult to women. I am absolutely shocked because I did not think any experienced leader and one who had close ties with our family could not control his language,” Ms. Raje said.
