The Election Commission (EC) has dismissed the complaint filed by the Congress Party against Prime Minister Modi for his remarks on former Prime Minister Late Rajiv Gandhi wherein Modi called him Bhrashtachari No. 1.

The EC said that the ‘Bhrashtachari No. 1’ remark against Rajiv Gandhi did not violate the Model Code of Conduct. Responding to the incessant allegations on the Rafale deal by the Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who is out on bail in National Herald case,  the Prime Minister had said that his father (Rajiv Gandhi) was termed as Mr. Clean by his courtiers but his life ended as a Bhrashtachari No.1, at a rally in Pratapgarh, Uttar Pradesh.

Rattled by the comments of the Prime Minister on Rajiv Gandhi, Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee had written to the Election Commission seeking strict action against PM Modi. In its letter addressed to the EC, the UPCC alleged that PM Modi’s remarks violated the MCC and were an insult to the Bharat Ratna awardee Rajiv Gandhi. The Congress party had filed several complaints with the EC against PM Modi, and most of them have been dismissed by the poll panel. BJP had also complained against Rahul Gandhi for calling Amit Shah a murder accused, which was also dismissed by the EC.
