On Wednesday, the Election Commission took action against former Telangana CM and BRS chief K Chandrashekar Rao, barring him from campaigning for 48 hours, effective from 8 pm today. This decision was made due to "derogatory and objectionable statements" made by Rao against the Congress party. The EC's action followed a complaint filed by Congress leader G Niranjan, prompting the commission to issue a notice to K Chandrashekar Rao. The EC noted that Rao had previously received several advisories and instructions regarding his speeches. #LSPolls2024 #TelanganaElections #KCR #CampaignBan #Elections2024 #KChandrashekarRao #ElectionBan #PoliticalNews #TelanganaCM #CampaignRestriction #PoliticalBan #ECAction #CampaigningBarred #ElectoralViolation #PoliticalSanction ~HT.178~PR.152~ED.194~GR.124~
