EC censures Khurshid on Quota promise, BJP demands resignation

Election Commission(EC) has censured Union law minister Salman Khurshid for violating the model code of conduct by promising 9% sub-quota for minorities in state government jobs if the Congress came to power in Uttar Pradesh. The EC noted that Khurshid had violated the poll code as the announcement came even before the Congress manifesto was released. Besides, the 9% sub-quota promise did not even figure in the party manifesto released on January 31.  This not end of problem for Salman khurshid, his recent comment on Batala Encounter case might brings more problems for him when he says that after seeing the pictures of encounter Congress chief sonia gandhi was sad and started weeping.
Meanwhile BJP demanded the resignation of Law Minister Salman Khurshid, who was censured by the Election Commission for violating the model code of conduct, and asked the Prime Minister to clarify his stand on the issue of sub-quota for minorities. “This verdict from EC is sufficient to demand resignation of Salman Khurshid from government. It also demands that the Prime Minister must clarify his stand on this unconstitutional announcement made by his Law Minister to give religion-based reservation to minorities, especially Muslims,” BJP Vice President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.
