Congress complains to EC over Modi filing his nomination on polling day

New Delhi, Apr.24: The Congress party on Thursday moved to the Election Commission to register case against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, for filing his nomination papers on polling day and holding road show to influence voters.

“We want the Election Commission to register a FIR against the BJP leaders, who were present there, and that includes their candidate from Varanasi – Narendra Modi,” said Congress leader Anand Sharma.

Modi, filed his nomination from Varanasi where he is pitted against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal.

“The sanctity of the voting in the electoral process in 117 Lok Sabha constituencies, where voting is on, has been gravely violated today. The model code of conduct has been thrown to the winds, the Representation of the People Act, Section 123, stands brazenly violated. Since morning there is live coverage in 117 constituencies of the BJP procession, speeches and Narendra Modi’s road show,” Sharma added.

Sharma alleged Modi gave fixed-interviews to media houses of his liking.

“He gives interview to the questioners of his liking because his personality is such that he can’t tolerate questioning by anybody,” he added. (ANI)
