BJP to take appropriate action on EC CD case order

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has given a guarded reaction to the Election Commission (EC) order, asking it to condemn an anti-Muslim compact disc video that was allegedly distributed during the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.

New Delhi, May 9 : The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has given a guarded reaction to the Election Commission (EC) order, asking it to condemn an anti-Muslim compact disc video that was allegedly distributed during the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.

BJP spokesman Prakash said that the party would take "appropriate action" on the CD issue."We are studying the order of the EC, they have given us the period till May 15, before that we will give our reply and will tell you about our appropriate action," Javadekar said after the party's central election committee meeting.The country's strict election laws prohibit parties and candidates from making religious or caste-based attacks on rivals.Elections in UP are seen by some analysts as an important test for the BJP as it attempts revive itself after losing to Congress in 2004 national polls.

The compact disk (CD), containing inflammatory comments about minority Muslims, was distributed during a news conference by BJP during UP polls.The party had disowned the CD, but the EC has said that the party must condemn the contents of the video publicly."... the respondent party (BJP) should come out with an unequivocal and unambiguous declaration that they strongly condemn the contents of the CD," the commission said in an order.Various political parties had approached the commission seeking the BJP's disqualification as a national party for releasing the CD. Meanwhile, the party said that it would make good-governance a poll plank

"In Goa, BJP will fight on its own and we are confident under the leadership of Manohar Parrikar, and Shirpad Naik, our state president, will get the complete majority," Anant Kumar of BJP said.

The party also released a list of 32 candidates for the forthcoming provincial election in western Goa state. Of the 32, two are women candidates; four belong to scheduled tribes and scheduled caste and nine from the other backward caste (OBC).The state, currently ruled by the federal ruling Congress party, goes to poll on June 2 and the results are expected by June 5.
