After demanding the arrest of Narendra Modi’s aide Amit Shah for his controversial revenge remarks, the Congress Sunday approached the Election Commission seeking the arrest of Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje for making what it called an “open threat” at an election rally.

According to the Congress, Raje refered to the Congress’s Saharanpur candidate Imran Masoood’s controversial “chop Narendra Modi into pieces” remark and told a rally, “Chunav ho jaane do, dekhenge kiska tukda hongey (Let the election get over, will see who gets chopped).” The party has said her “statement is an open threat, deliberately and intentionally made, which is a criminal offence”.

“She is holding a constitutional post as the CM of Rajasthan and is under oath to uphold law and order, the Constitution and to maintain the sanctity and propriety of the CM’s office. She cannot and should not take the liberty (of acting) in such a fashion, while holding such an office, (of committing) such a crime. In her statement, she mentioned the alleged statement of Imran Masood, but the two cases are not comparable,” the Congress wrote.
