Election Commission Gave clean chit to Modi in two more cases

Vastavam web: The Election Commission has given clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in two more cases, sources aware of the development said Monday. The Congress had alleged that he held a “roadshow” in Ahmedabad on April 23 and the sources said the commission has concluded that Modi did not violate the model code and the election law.

They said that the commission has also cleared Modi for his April 9 speech at Chitradurga in Karnataka where he had reportedly asked new voters to dedicate their vote for the heroes of the Balakot air strike.

Though the commission has so far not made the two decisions public, with these decisions, Modi has been given a clean chit in eight matters.
The poll authorities in Gujarat are learnt to have maintained that prima facie no violation was found. The Congress had moved the EC alleging that Modi took out a “roadshow” after casting his vote and made political remarks in violation of the Model Code of Conduct.

After casting his vote in Ahmedabad, Modi walked some distance from the polling booth and interacted briefly with media persons. Earlier, the EC had cleared six speeches of Modi, two of Shah and one of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.
