New Delhi [India], April 2 (ANI): A BJP delegation met the Election Commission on Friday and filed a complaint against DMK chief MK Stalin's son Udhayanidhi Stalin over his remarks on late Union Ministers Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley.
The delegation, in its complaint filed with the EC, sought the disqualification of Udhayanidhi's candidature in the Tamil Nadu assembly elections and demanded that he should be delisted from the list of DMK star campaigners and debarred from campaigning.
On Thursday, Udayanidhi Stalin created a controversy when he alleged that late union ministers Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley died because of the pressure and torture from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

We have also demanded action against Udhayanidhi Stalin for these remarks against late leaders Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley".
