Mangaluru,  Mar 13, 2019: MLC Ivan D’Souza has  urged the Election Commission to file a suo moto case against Dakshina Kannada MP  Nalin Kumar Kateel for an offensive tweet which the latter has made.


Ivan who spoke to reporters at the Congress office in the city on March 13, Wednesday was referring to a tweet made by the MP on March 11 at 10.16 pm and which read as so – "Raatri 3 gantege shatru deshakke nuggi hodeyuvanthe adesha needuvavarige matha haakabeke horathu, raatri 3 gantege  ugrarigaagi supreme courtina baagilu theresuvavarigalla... Modi Mathomme’’ (People should vote for those who issue orders to strike the enemy nation at  3 in the night  rather than those who get the Supreme Court doors opened for the sake of  terrorists at 3 in the night... Modi again).



Ivan alleged that the MP has violated the poll code of conduct by tweeting as above after the poll code came into force. "The MP has misused the  military action for the sake of votes, the Election Commission must take serious note of this and initiate action," he demanded.

The Congress, he said was determined to root out the BJP, the Congress candidates will win  in Dakshina Kannada, Udupi and Uttara Kannada constituencies, he said.
