The Congress party has faced yet another embarrassment after the Election Commission (EC) stated that PM Narendra Modi hasn’t violated any poll code. While addressing a rally in Wardha on April 1, PM Modi had said “The Congress insulted Hindus and the people of the country have decided to punish the party in the election. Leaders of that party are now scared of contesting from constituencies dominated by the majority population. That is why they are forced to take refuge in places where the majority is a minority”.
This honest statement of PM Modi was difficult for the Congress party to digest and it knocked the bells of the Election Commission. Soon the Congress party launched a delegating that included leaders like Ahmed Patel, Jairam Ramesh, Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Randeep Surjewala.
To the Election Commission, the Congress leaders complained “The prime minister through his speech tried to spread hate for electoral gains which is a serious violation of the Representation of People Act”. All these decades, the Congress party used religions as a means to divide people and seek votes. But when PM Modi educated the people about this, the century old party couldn’t digest it.
But the election commission didn’t fall for this trick of the Congress party, as it stated that “The matter has been examined in detail in accordance with the extant guidelines/provisions of the Model Code of Conduct, the Representation of the People Act, 1951, and the report of the Chief Electoral Officer, Maharashtra. Accordingly, Commission is of the considered view that in this matter no such violation has been noticed” after going through the transcript of the speech and report from the chief electoral officer of Maharashtra.
There are three more phases to go, and it seems like the Congress party has already surrendered themselves to to mighty Modi wave. That’s why they are trying to divert the attention of the people by regularly talking about EVMs and so-called violation of poll code.
