EC bans Yogi Adityanath from campaigning for 72 hours, Mayawati for 48 over MCC violation

Taking strict action against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and BSP chief Mayawati for violating the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) by making objectionable statements in their speeches, the Election Commission on Tuesday banned both the leads from election campaigning for 72 hours and 48 hours respectively.

The poll panel swung into action hours after the Supreme Court expressed its displeasure over its decision to not take action against Yogi Adityanath for his statement on Ali and Bajrang Bali and Mayawati for appealing Muslims to vote for her party.

The ban starting from 6 am Tuesday has been imposed on both the leaders for violating the MCC, the EC said in a press release.
