Are you toothless to deal with hate speech: SC to EC

India ‘undermined’ Pakistan’s nuclear threat, claims Modi

The poll body has also censured BSP chief Mayawati for 48 hours, starting 6 am on April 16.

Days later, hitting out at Mayawati, Yogi Adityanath said, "If the Congress, the SP and the BSP have faith in Ali, then we too have faith in Bajrang Bali" - a comment that triggered outraged protests from the opposition.

The Election Commission on Monday banned Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath from campaigning for 72 hours and Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati for 48 hours for violating the Model Code of Conduct.

The Supreme Court on Monday took note of the alleged hate speeches by the leaders and sought to know from the Election Commission the action initiated against them so far. "They say that they first issue a notice, then advisory and then complain", the bench said, adding it would examine the aspect relating to poll panel's power to deal with hate speeches during the poll campaign.

Eight cars fail inspection before Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway
They include the cars of local favorite Denny Hamlin , a three-time victor on the 0.75-mile oval, Chase Elliott and Matt Tifft . And the inspection heavily impacted the starting grid with eight of the 37 cars failing inspection at least once.

The objectionable speech was made during campaigns held in Meerut.

The EC may have to explain on Tuesday how it made a decision to take action when Mayawati and Adityanath had not filed reply to the notices.

The BSP chief has violated the model code of conduct, the poll panel found.

This response from the EC came when a bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna asked what action the EC had taken against Mayawati for appealing to Muslim voters and against Adityanath for his "Ali".

Pelicans reportedly will hire David Griffin to lead basketball operations
The second-year shooter reportedly wouldn't mind a trade to New Orleans , for what it's worth. Then, he drafted Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

At a recent meeting in Deoband, Mayawati had warned the Muslim community not to "split votes" between the Congress and her alliance. The EC said the BSP supremo prima facie violated the Model Code of Conduct. Ali is a revered figure in Islam and Hanuman is often called Bajrangbali. However, after the EC's order she will not be able to attend the rally.

Earlier today, the Supreme Court - which was hearing an appeal seeking action against political parties using use religion and caste to seek votes - was extremely upset when the Election Commission's representative said, "We don't have any powers".

The poll panel told Mayawati that being a senior leader, she should have "desisted" from making such comments that have the "undertone and propensity to polarise the elections" in several constituencies due to the reach of the media.

The EC had taken a similar step in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls when it had banned BJP leader Amit Shah and SP leader Azam Khan from campaigning in Uttar Pradesh on April 11 for their controversial remarks.

They said they will not comment further now. "We will not extend a qualifying offer to him for the 2019-20 season". A bench player, Robinson saw just 95 minutes of play across seven games in the 2018-2019 season.

Since Khan had not given a similar assurance, the ban on him had continued.
