EC meets to decide complaints against Modi, Rahul

The Election Commission earler held a meeting to decide on the complaints of alleged violations of the model code of conduct (MCC) against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress President Rahul Gandhi and BJP President Amit Shah.

While Modi and Shah have been accused of making “hate speeches” and “using” the armed forces for “political propaganda” during their Lok Sabha poll campaigns, the complaints against Gandhi relate to his use of the “chowkidar chor hai” slogan.

“Regarding the alleged complaints of violation of model code of conduct against senior leaders of two political parties, the Commission has already taken all the inputs and details and has scheduled a meeting on Tuesday for taking a decision on each of the issues,” Deputy Election Commissioner Chandra Bhushan Kumar had told the media.

“At present there are three leaders against whom there are complaints — Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi and Amit Shah. The matters are under consideration with the Commission,” he added.

Kumar also said that the “full Commission” will meet on Tuesday to decide on the complaints. “The secretariat has processed everything and placed the details before the Commission,” he said.
