EC censures Salman Khurshid over sub-quota remarks

New Delhi , Thu, 09 Feb 2012 ANI

New Delhi, Feb 9 (ANI): The Election Commission has censured Union Law and Justice Minister Salman Khurshid for his remarks on sub-quota for minorities, and said he violated the election code of conduct.


According to the Election Commission, Khurshid violated the model code of conduct by making promise of nine percent sub-quota for minorities and that it expects him not to repeat such violations.


The poll panel said that being the Law Minister of the country, Khurshid should have been more careful and set an example for others.


The Election Commission had earlier issued notice to Khurshid on a complaint by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that he violated the model code of conduct by announcing nine percent sub-quota for Muslims if the party was voted to power in Uttar Pradesh.


Khurshid, however, later told the Election Commission that his remarks promising job quota for minorities was made as a Congress leader and not as a Union law minister or minorities minister.


Following the statement by Khurshid, the BJP had been criticizing the Congress Party for announcing such assurances of increase in Muslim reservation right ahead of the polls. (ANI)
