Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram today said Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh and Niti Aayog vice-chairman Rajiv Kumar have no right to remain in office after their indictment by the Election Commission (EC) for poll code violation.
On Friday, the Election Commission expressed “displeasure” over the NITI Aayog vice chairman’s remarks against the Congress’ proposed minimum income scheme ‘NYAY’.
The poll panel on Monday said Mr Singh’s remarks supporting the return of Narendra Modi as prime minister were violative of the model code.
“Governor Kalyan Singh and Niti Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar must resign immediately. After the indictment by the Election Commission, they have no right to remain in office,” Mr Chidambaram said on Twitter.
