Additional chief electoral officer R Lakshmanan told media persons that the Election Commission has ordered the Patna district magistrate to lodge a case against Giriraj Singh for his remark.

“It is an open violation of Model Code of Conduct,” he said.

Lakshmanan said the order was given to Patna administration after 24 hours deadline given to Griraj Singh to submit his explanation failed.

A case for making an inflammatory speech was registered on Sunday against Griraj Singh in Jharkhand where he repeated his remarks at an election meeting.
