Verma, on Thursday, called Modi an 'animal' and said that he needed to be taught a lesson. Verma was addressing Congress workers in Gonda when he made the statement.
The EC is sure to take notice of this. EC on Thursday had issued a show cause notice to Verma for violating Model Code of Conduct.
Verma had earlier called Narendra Modi the 'biggest goon'. Verma had said that if Rahul Gandhi becomes the Prime Minister, Modi and his aide Amit Shah would be jailed for life for Gidhra riots.
