Tamil Nadu govt issues notice to Chennai college for hosting Rahul Gandhi event after Model Code of Conduct came into force

Model Code of Conduct came into force on 11th March, and Rahul Gandhi interacted with students of the college on 13th

The Stella Maris college in Chennai seems to be in trouble for hosting Rahul Gandhi for an event in the college. On 13th March, the Congress president had interacted with approximately 3000 students of the women’s college.

Now the Directorate of Collegiate Education in Tamil Nadu has issued to notice to the regional joint director of the college to explain why the college campus was used for a discussion involving a political leader when the Model Code of Conduct has come into force for the Lok Sabha elections.

The Election Commission of India announced the dates for Lok Sabha elections on 11th March, and immediately after that, the Model Code of Conduct became applicable as per election laws. According to guidelines issued by the EC under the Model Code of Conduct, use of educational institutions including their grounds for political campaigns and rallies is not allowed. This includes government, aided and private educational institutions.

The notice says that as per newspaper reports, political leaders interacted with students of the college. As the Model Code of Conduct for Lok Sabha elections has come into force, how this was allowed, the college is asked to reply immediately.

Yesterday the BJYM Tamil Nadu unit president Vinoj Selvam had lodged a complaint with the election commission against Rahul Gandhi for using the College campus to talk to students when the model code is in force.

He had also complained about comments made by Rahul Gandhi during the event, and demanded that EC should prevent the Congress party and its leaders from making unverified allegations against rivals.
