New Delhi, April 23: The Congress on Tuesday moved the Election Commission against Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the violation of Model Code of Conduct (MCC).
“Today after casting his vote, PM took out a long procession & delivered a speech. There has never been such a clear violation of MCC, he is a habitual offender”, said Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi after meeting the poll panel.
“We appealed to EC to bar him from campaigning for 48-72 hours”, he added.
Earlier in the day, PM Modi cast his vote at Nishan Higher Secondary School in Ahmedabad’s Ranip.
Speaking to the media, the Prime Minister stated people must vote in large numbers as the power of the Voter ID was stronger than the improvised explosive device (IED) used by terrorists.
“Terrorists’ weapon is IED while democracy’s strength is Voter ID. I believe that the power of Voter ID is much more stronger than the IED. Understand the importance of Voter ID and vote in large numbers,” he asserted.
The Prime Minister said that voters of India were wise and knew who to vote for. “They know the difference between good and bad.”
