remark.
In a complaint to Chief Elector Officer Satyabrata Sahoo, BJP
Legal Cell State President R Soundararajan said Kamal, during
the campaign for the May 19 assembly bypoll to Aravakurichi seat,
had spoken that 'Nathuram Godse is the First Hindu terrorist of
Independent India''.

the above remarks were made and Kamal's intention was to create
religious unrest in the society and create communal tension in the
