The Election Commission has barred the ruling BJP in Gujarat from using the word "Pappu" in an electronic advertisement, which apparently targeted Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, calling it "derogatory". "Pappu" is perceived as a social media slur coined to target Gandhi. Confirming the development, sources in the BJP said the script of the advertisement did not link the word to any individual.
