Gandhi on Monday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue of corruption and asked how come all "thieves" have 'Modi' as the common surname as he referred to fugitive businessman Nirav Modi and former IPL chairman Lalit Modi.
Led by Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, a BJP delegation which included leaders Om Pathak and Satyapal Jain met top poll panel officials here and demanded action against Gandhi.
"We requested the election commission to take action against Rahul Gandhi as he has insulted people from a backward caste by asking why all Modis are thieves. This shows his feudal mindset," Naqvi said.
The BJP has also demanded deployment of paramilitary forces in all districts of West Bengal and video recording of polling in the state, he said.
