New Delhi [India], Jan 16 (ANI): In a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) CPI (M) on Tuesday sought an enquiry into the meeting of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) with National Security Advisor Ajit Doval in Delhi.

The CPI (M) alleged that the meeting was convened at Home Minister Rajnath Singh's residence to evolve the electoral strategy of the BJP in the forthcoming Assembly elections in Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland.

An official statement from the CPI (M) read, "Presence of any person holding an important position like that of National Security Advisor is not only undesirable and objectionable, it is a glaring instance of blatant misuse of administration by the ruling party at the Centre for garnering political mileage in the elections".

"Such misuse of administration is nothing but a real threat to the democratic system of the country," the statement further added.

The CPI (M) further requested the Chief Election Commissioner to order an appropriate authority for an investigation into the matter. (ANI)
