Kolkata: The Election Commission on Monday censured West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh for violating the model code of conduct during an election rally in West Midnapore district.

Officials said the poll panel was not satisfied with the reply of Ghosh, who was show-caused earlier, following which the decision to censure him was taken.

It was alleged that Ghosh had openly threatened Trinamool Congress workers at a rally in Kharagpur, from where he was fighting in the recently concluded state Assembly elections.

Polling for all the six phases have ended on May 5 and counting will be taken up on May 19.
