"We condemn such baseless comments made by him, Kumar told the media."
New Delhi, May 3 - The BJP Saturday asked the Election Commission to file a complaint against Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for his alleged comments at an election rally in Himachal Pradesh.

The Gandhi scion had in a rally May 1 said that if the BJP comes to power, peace would be a casualty.

He had also said in the rally in Solan that 22,000 people lost lives during the five-year NDA rule in various terrorist activities while merely 800 people had been killed in the UPA government's five-year tenure.

After meeting the poll panel Saturday, BJP's Ananth Kumar said the party has requested the Election Commission to ensure that such language is not used.

We condemn such baseless comments made by him, Kumar told the media.

The Bharatiya Janata Party had Friday also asked the commission to register an FIR against Rahul Gandhi for his comments.
