Congress files petition against EC in SC for not taking action against alleged poll code violation by PM Modi and Amit Shah

While the Congress claims that Narendra Modi and Amit Shah are violating the poll code, their own party president is going around furthering the propaganda peddled by Naxals.

The Congress party on Monday filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the Election Commission for failing to take any action against Prime Minister Modi and BJP President for the alleged poll code violation. The Congress party alleged that military operations were used in the election campaign and hate speeches were made but the poll panel did not act despite numerous complaints.

The petition was filed by Congress MP Sushmita Dev. The top court will hear her petition on Tuesday. The Congress said 37 representations were given to the EC in which 10 could be classified as “hate speeches, virulent, divisive, polarising” by the top leaders of the BJP.

The Congress party further alleged that Narendra Modi had violated the Model Code of Conduct by allegedly holding a road show when he went to cast his vote in Ahmedabad. It claimed that chants of “Modi, Modi” were raised and that the Prime Minister waved at them.

The petition states, “It is in public domain that they have indulged in hate speeches, repeatedly used the armed forces for political propaganda, despite a clear prohibition on the same by the Respondent/ECI. Furthermore, the Prime Minister in blatant violation of the MCC held a rally on the day of polling in Gujarat on April 23rd, 2019 i.e. date of voting in the third phase of the election.”

It further stated, “The lack of decision despite cogent evidence, representations and exhortations to the Respondent/ECI demonstrates abdication and indecision and a complete absence of justice, in ensuring a level playing field in ensuing General Elections for the Lok Sabha. The inactions, omissions and commissions by the Respondent/ECI are in complete and direct violation of Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution and which are impeding free, fair and unbiased General Elections, 2019.“

While the Congress claims that Narendra Modi and Amit Shah are violating the poll code, their own party president is going around furthering the propaganda peddled by Naxals. He declared, at a recent rally in Madhya Pradesh, that the Modi government has included a provision in the Adivasi law which will empower the government to gun down Tribals (Adivasis) without having to face any consequences. And that was after he allied with extremist Muslims in Kerala, as claimed by Communists in the state.
