New Delhi: The Election Commission has sought the original CD of Amit Shah's speech from the Uttar Pradesh poll officials for handing it over to the BJP leader, who has been issued a notice for prima facie violation of the Model Code of Conduct over his “revenge” remarks.


Sources in the EC said that after the CD is received from the UP poll authorities and handed over to Shah, the poll body will initiate further action only after hearing the BJP leader further on the issue.

Shah had yesterday urged the Election Commission to reconsider its notice to him for his alleged “revenge” remarks claiming the statement has not been recorded in the right perspective.

In his reply to the EC, Shah denied having made any “revenge” remarks in his speech in western Uttar Pradesh and said he had not violated the Model Code of Conduct.
