There is no evidence that the central government ordered the state police to fire on the protesters, and the probe into the incident is still ongoing. Therefore, SG Suryah has filed the complaint alleging that that speech by Stalin violates the model code of conduct for elections. The complaint states:

 This statement is totally false and defamatory. It amounts to inciting violence and hatred against the Hon’ble Prime Minister and the BJP. Also, such a speech is in direct violation of the following provision of Model of Code of Conduct. Annexure V of the Model Code of Conduct specifically provides for the “Do’s and Dont’s” to be followed by the political parties till the elections are over. Clause (v) of Annexure V reads as follows:

“No criticism of other parties or their workers on basis of unverified allegations or on distortions”
