Congress Delegation lead by Abhishek Manu Singhvi comprising Rajiv Shukla and Salman Khurshid on Sunday met the Poll Commission. It demanded immediate action against PM for the remarks. Briefing the media, Abhishek Manu Singhvi said a plea against Rajiv Gandhi was junked by the Top Court in 2018, therefore, PM Modi misled the nation with the remark.

It should be noted the Election Commission has so far given green signal to PM Modi in at least 9 cases of alleged model code of conduct.

Congress had moved to the Poll Commission with multiple complaints against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah. However, till now, EC gave 9 clean chits to PM Modi and two such to BJP Chief Amit Shah.

General Elections 2019 is being across seven phases starting April 11 to May 19. The remaining 118 Lok Sabha seats will go to polls in remaining two phases.
