Cong moves EC against Modi ‘road show’ after voting, calls him ‘uncaring offender’

NEW DELHI: The Congress on Tuesday moved the EC alleging that Prime Minister Narendra Modi took out a “road show” after casting his vote as well as made political remarks in violation of the model code of conduct, and demanded that a campaign ban of 2-3 days be imposed on him for being an “uncaring offender”.

The opposition party also made a representation to the Election Commission (EC) over alleged model code of conduct violation by BJP chief Amit Shah and demanded a 72-hour campaign ban on him.

The Congress delegation comprising Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Jairam Ramesh and K Raju told the EC that Shah “openly raised Balakot air strikes, Pulwama attack and armed forces” while seeking votes in Krishnanagar, West Bengal.

The party strongly raised the issue of alleged violation of the model code of conduct by the Prime Minister.

After casting his vote in Ahmedabad, Modi walked some distance from the polling booth and interacted briefly with media persons. (AGENCIES)
