EC seeks report on Modi’s rally in Faizabad

Lucknow, May 5: The Election Commission has sought a report from Faizabad district officials regarding the speech of BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and the stage backdrop.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Electoral Officer Umesh Sinha said, “District administration and observers are investigating this. We have asked for a report on this matter. Let the report come in and then only we can make a decision.”

Earlier today, Narendra Modi landed in another controversy for addressing a rally in Faizabad with an image of Lord Ram in the backdrop.

“Faizabad should allow a lotus to bloom in the land of Shri Ram. I assure you from Bhagwan Ram’s land, I will fight corruption throughout my life. I have seen poverty, that’s why I have the courage to say this,” Modi had said while addressing a rally. (ANI)
