The EC is likely to take a call on the issue in its meeting tomorrow, the sources said.
The BJP leader has sparked a row with his comment that the general election, especially in western UP, is “an election for honour. It is an election to take revenge for the insult. It an election to teach a lesson to those who have committed injustice”.
Congress has demanded the arrest of Shah for his remarks while BJP has said that he had talked of taking revenge from Congress and his statement was not against any particular community.
The speech came under attack from political parties which accused him of vitiating the atmosphere in the region, which witnessed one of the worst communal riots between Hindus and Muslims in September last year.
