The Election Commission has discharged Prime Minister Narendra Modi against allegations of Model Code of Conduct violation in a speech by him in Wardha, Maharashtra.
The EC, in a statement said, that it is of the considered view that in this matter no such violation has been noticed.
However, the Commission has imposed a few bans on some of the other leaders, such as:
- On BJP’s Gujarat President Jitubhai Vagani for violating the model code of conduct for using intemperate and abusive language, while addressing party workers at Amroli in Surat on 7th of April; and
- On Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan from poll campaigning for 48 hours for his provocative remarks against poll authorities in Uttar Pradesh and making communal statements.
