Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut cocks a snook at Election Model Code of Conduct Says "To hell with the law!"

15, Apr 2019 | CJP Team

Showing shocking disregard for the law of the land and the election model code of conduct, Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut announced in an open rally his complete contempt for the law of the land.

“As it is we are not the kind of people who follow the law. Then we are constantly reminded about the Election Model Code of Conduct being in effect. I say, to hell with the law! We will see what to do about the Code of Conduct. If we don’t speak about how we really feel, we feel suffocated,” said Raut at a rally organised in Mira Road in Thane District near Mumbai on the occasion of Ram Navami.

#HateFreeElections is CJP’s campaign to monitor the public discourse for hate speech during the 2019 elections. This is also a part of our broader Hate Watch campaign. You can take action against hate too, by sending us reports of instances of hate using our Hate Hatao app, and donating to support our efforts.

Given how such a public statement. about blatant disrespect for the law and the code of conduct, can potentially encourage listeners to engage in acts of violation of the law, shouldn’t the local police and the EC immediately take cognisance of Raut’s statement and take necessary action in the matter?
