The Election Commission met Tuesday morning and mutually came down to the conclusion of putting a full stop to the Salman Khurshid issue in order to stick to the code of conduct of the commission. The statement released by EC said, “It is a closed chapter for us”.
Salman Khurshid wrote a letter to the EC and said he “bows to the wisdom of the EC” and will make sure that such unpleasant situation does not surface again. He further said, “I treat this matter as unfortunate and regret the statement…it has never been my intention to transgress the law and undermine the election code of conduct. I have great respect for the Commission and the decisions it takes and has taken”.
The comments made by khurshid in regards to the minority sub-quota poll upset Congress quite a bit. They said, “People occupying posts of responsibility should speak responsibly”.
A petition was filed against Khurshid on Monday morning for hurting the sentiments of the minorities in India. The petition filed by lawyer K K Gupa demanded the local court to take action against the law minister for his inconsiderate comments over the rights of minorities.
