Four-time Lower House member, and BJP leader Sakshi Maharaj, who made headlines last month for saying that the “Modi tsunami” after the 17th Lok Sabha elections would lead to no requirement of any further elections.
 
Creating another internet uproad, Maharaj, at a rally in Unnao in Uttar Pradesh, which he represents currently, and is contesting from again this year, on April 29, in the fourth phase, said that he will “give sins” to people if they do not vote for him.
 
The BJP leader, who holds the title of “Acharya”, called himself a Saint, and threatened the people by quoting the Hindu Shastras, where is it stated that “when a Sanyasi asks for something and is not provided with, then he takes away all the good deeds and give sins in return”.
 
This unusual and controversial remark had led to demands by many citizens across India asking for the EC to send a notice to the OBC leader, and condemn him for using religion as a part of a political propaganda, which is a clear violation of the Model Code of Conduct.
