Bhopal, Oct 15: At the time when assembly elections are fast approaching in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, the ruling- BJP has come under serious controversy.

In a shocking case of violation of Election Commission code of conduct, the MP industries minister Kailash Vijaywargiya was caught on camera while doling out cash to people.

According to a TV report, the flouting of EC norms took place on October 11.

Even after being spotted on camera, the controversial BJP minister defended his action and claimed that "distributing money is part of our culture" and instead, questioned the code of conduct of the Election Commission.

Vijayvargiya remains defiant and unabashed over violating EC norms.

Although Vijayvargiya, the BJP MLA from Mhow district, remains defiant and unabashed over violating EC norms, but his misdeed has certainly put the ruling-BJP into a fix and has given the opposition Congress an opportunity to degrade them.

Kailash Vijayvargiya is not new to controversies. Earlier also, he has been in limelight for making a controversial remark on the brutal gangrape of a girl in Delhi last year.

Then, he recently stirred a row after supporting self-styled godman Asaram Bapu even after he was accused of raping a 16-year-old girl in his ashram, He termed the incident as "political conspiracy" against Asaram.

Vijayvargiya's brazen act of violation of EC norms may have repercussions on the upcoming assembly elections that are scheduled to take place on November 25. The election results will be declared on December 8.

Vijayvargiya's act of distributing money in front of camera may also pour water on the rigorous election campaigning by the state's Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan as well as by the state's BJP unit.
