District Returning Officer-cum-Deputy Commissioner Rugved Thakur in the letter sent to the BJP leader advised him to "be prudent about the selection of words in speeches in the future to ensure peaceful election".
Addressing a rally on April 24 here, Satti had said: "Our leaders are sitting on the dais. If anyone dares to raise their finger, we would chop their hands off. We are not nincompoops. We are not a group of stupid people."
The state BJP chief, in his reply to the notice, said, "I was not having any political vendetta or intention against any of the workers or leaders of any of the political party/opponents."
"I never made any false, derogatory or inciting remarks, as alleged in the notice under reply. Moreover, the wording of my speech was taken otherwise by press correspondents," he added.
