Now the Election Commission has taken similar action against BJP leader Rahul Sinha. The Election Commission has banned him from campaigning for 48 hours. He is accused of making objectionable statements in relation to armed forces. Now Rahul Sinha will not be able to campaign for the next 48 hours.

Condemning the decision, Banerjee said that she would hold a sit-in in the city on Tuesday against the unconstitutional and undemocratic decision of the commission.
