SC to hear Modi, Amit Shah code violation petition tomorrow

The Supreme Court will hear a petition filed by Congress MP Sushmita Dev, tomorrow,  seeking urgent and necessary directions to the Election Commission (EC) to take a decision on the complaints filed against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah over alleged violations of electoral laws while campaigning for Lok Sabha elections.

Dev’s petition seeks urgent and necessary directions to the EC to take a decision on the complaints filed against PM Modi and BJP President Amit Shah over alleged violations of electoral laws.

Congress has been alleging that the EC was ignoring its complaints against both the senior leaders on model code violations and had warned last weekend that it considered moving court if no action was initiated by the poll body.

“We are astonished and sadly compelled to say that the Model Code of Conduct has become Modi code of conduct,” Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi had said at a press conference. He added, “We are also saddened to say that it is as if in the second word of the Election Commission, the letter ‘C’ has been dropped and it has become the ‘Election omission’ as far as the Modi and Shah duo is concerned.”
