Union Finance Minister, P. Chidambaram on Thursday termed that the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) protest against the Election Commission turning down its request to hold to hold rallies in Varanasi as an act of desperation.


"BJP is getting a bit desperate that is why they are making outrageous attacks on Election Commission. BJP's statements against the Election Commission are an act of desperation," Chidambaram said at a press conference while addressing the reporters.

Chidambaram also took a snipe indirectly against the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for his remarks on EC, "When PM candidate of BJP makes outrageous remarks on the Election Commission, it reveals the character of the person and not poll panel."

"I don't agree with comment that Election Commission is weakest. In fact, the poll panel has done tremendous job so far," the Union finance minister said
