The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has formally complained to the Election Commission of India, accusing Congress MP Rahul Gandhi of violating the Representation of People Act 1951. The complaint centers around a social media post by Rahul Gandhi on “X” (formerly Twitter) that allegedly breached the 48-hour silence zone limit on the polling day in Rajasthan.
The BJP contends that Rahul Gandhi’s post, promising healthcare, gas subsidies, agricultural debt relief, English education, OBC reservations, and urging active participation in the ongoing voting process, violates Section 126 of the Act. This section prohibits the display of any election-related material within 48 hours of the conclusion of polls in a constituency.

According to the BJP, the post has been viewed by over 2,30,900 users on the social media platform as of 10:35 am on November 25, constituting a significant violation. The party called it an “audacious act” and urged the Election Commission to take strong and urgent punitive action against the Congress leader.
In its letter, the BJP requested the Election Commission to direct the social media platform “X” to immediately suspend Rahul Gandhi’s account and remove the alleged offending content. Additionally, the party called on the Election Commission to instruct the Chief Election Officer of Rajasthan to file a criminal complaint and initiate criminal prosecution against Rahul Gandhi.
As polling is underway in 199 out of the 200 assembly constituencies in Rajasthan, the complaint adds to the political dynamics surrounding the state elections, with more than 5.25 crore voters deciding the fate of 1,862 candidates.
