The EC had showcaused him after it seemed that he had promoted the song without media certification, on the electronic media and social media platforms. “Babul Supriyo has sent a reply and it is still under consideration of the Commission,” Additional Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Bengal Sanjoy Basu said. Supriyo had reportedly not taken the nod of the commission before releasing the song.
