Election Commission has also barred BJP leader and Union Minister Maneka Gandhi for 48 hours and Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan for 72 hours from poll campaigning.
Two days later, according to the Election Commission, Yogi Adityanath told a rally in Meerut about Mayawati's speech and said: "If the Congress, SP and BSP have faith in "Ali", we have faith in "Bajrang Bali", the followers of Bajrang Bali will not tolerate them".
The Election Commission of India has passed orders temporarily barring incumbent Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and the BSP's Mayawati from campaigning for the 2019 general elections on finding them guilty of having made polarising, communal speeches in violation fo the Model Code of Conduct (MCC).
SC took note of the statements made by Mayawati, appealing Muslims to vote and Yogi Adityanath hugely criticised by the opposition for dragging the armed forces into politics after his "Modi ji ki Sena" comment.
The bench referred to submissions of the Election Commission that they can issue notices, then an advisory and finally lodge a complaint against an errant politician for violating the Model Code of Conduct for giving hate speeches during campaigns by invoking caste and religion.
The ECI's action came hours after the Supreme Court pulled up the poll panel for failing to take action against hate speeches by politicians. She had also said that Congress is not strong enough for a fight. "All other challenges are capable of early resolution", Mr Jaitley said in a Facebook post titled "Why Jammu and Kashmir, and new approach to terrorism will remain a key political issue".
Ms. Mayawati said while she was penalised by the EC, the panel did not have the courage to issue notice to "real culprits" like Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah whom she accused of violating the MCC through references to the Army and trying to incite religious feelings.
