Ahead of Bihar assembly polls next month the Election commission has warned candidates and political leaders against making statements during campaigning which are repugnant to the dignity of women. In an advisory sent to all national and state parties the Commission has asked candidates to maintain high standards during the election campaigning saying it is putting all political parties on notice that any violation of model code of conduct and use of intemperate abusive language may invite action. The EC officials said the reason for asking candidates and leaders against using distasteful language against women is based on its experience in the past assembly elections.
