The Congress Wednesday accused Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) N. Gopalaswami of shielding the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the controversial “hate” CD case during the 2007 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections. “CEC N. Gopalaswami, instead of taking action against the BJP in a case of distribution of ‘hate’ CDs in which an FIR was lodged against BJP president Rajnath Singh and (senior leader) Lalji Tandon, absolved the party saying that the BJP has tendered apologies,” Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari told reporters here. Tewari said the CEC also “put in cold storage” the case filed against Tandon and 10 others related to the distribution of sarees in Lucknow in 2004.
