The Election Commission on Thursday lifted its ban on Amit Shah from campaigning in Uttar Pradesh for the upcoming elections, while the ban on Azam Khan continues to stay.

This has received majorly positive reactions from various sections of the society, while the political parties such as Samajwadi Party (SP), seem to be miffed with this decision.

Although Shah had promised the EC that he would not disturb the public law and order, SP spokesperson Rajendra Chowdhury said that it was BJP and BJP's character could not be trusted.

Both Shah and Azam were banned by the EC on April 11 from campaigning in the state following their controversial remarks during their election campaigns in Uttar Pradesh.

Many people welcomed this move of the Election Commission and even called it a 'triumph' of truth on Twitter.

Several people tweeted about how this was bound to happen as there was no substance in the accusation:
