Kamal Nath tells party people not to comment on caste and religion

Bhopal, Nov 16 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Congress Chief Kamal Nath has advised his party workers not to comment on any topic related to religion and caste during the Assembly election campaign.

In a letter that has gone viral on the social media, Nath says that there is no place for people who spread hatred and humiliate others.

The party runs on the ideology of Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Nehru, Nath wrote in the letter of November 8. He advised party workers not to comment on sensitive issues related to religion, national security and in the legal matters related to Courts. Nath asked them not to level any allegations against anyone without having any substantial proof with them.

“Also avoid yourself from making any indecent comment on other party leaders,” he said.

Nath has earlier charged the BJP with creating an atmosphere of communal polarization in the state ahead of the Assembly elections.

Elections in Madhya Pradesh will take place on November 28, and counting will take place on December 11.

The BJP, which has been in power for the last 15 years, and the Congress are seen to be in direct contest in the state.

In the 2013 elections, the BJP had won 165 seats in the 230-member House. The Congress had bagged 58 seats, while the BSP had got four. One seat has gone to an independent.
