Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sunday called for a law that would bar the Prime Minister and chief ministers from participating in election rallies.

"There were comments made on the Prime Minister during the Gujarat polls. All this happened as the PM himself jumped into the muck. It should stop now. There should be a law in place to stop the PM and CMs from participating in election rallies," Raut said.

"The Parliament is the supreme constitutional institution in the country where new laws are made in every session. Now everybody should show the willingness to make a law to bar the PM and CMs from holding election rallies," he said. Taking a dig at the BJP, Raut said the government's coffers were looted most by the Congress, but those who raised a voice against this were in power today.
