<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The legal cell of Nagpur BJP unit today issued a legal notice to some Congress leaders for allegedly making “defamatory and mischievous” statements against the party candidates elected in the just-held local body elections in Maharashtra. According to the notice, these Congress leaders made “defamatory, irresponsible and mischievous” statements against the BJP candidates elected in the Zilla Parishad, Panchayat Samiti and municipal corporations polls. Advocate Vinod Tiwary, BJP National Executive member and co-convenor of the legal cell, issued the notice on behalf of Meenakashi Bolenwar, a BJP Councillor from Yavatmal district. The notice claimed the respondents are tarnishing the image of BJP by levelling baseless allegations in the media that the saffron party tampered with EVMs and used corrupt means to get its candidates elected. The notice demanded unconditional apology from the respondents. Failure to do so will invite criminal as well as civil prosecution, it said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
