Lok Sabha Polls 2019: EC gives ‘another’ clean chit to PM Modi; this time for seeking votes on Pulwama, Balakot

The Poll Body on Wednesday gave another clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his alleged violation of the model code of conduct. The Poll Office in the statement said that PM Modi’s Speech in a rally in Maharashtra’s Lathur doesn’t violate the poll code.

Addressing a rally in Maharashtra’s Latur last month in April, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the first time voters to contribute their first vote to the Pulwama martyrs and Balakot air strike.

The PM Modi speech in Latur brought a storm of complaints from the opposition of the EC’s negligence towards the ruling party and the Prime Minister. Following the complaints from the opposition, EC had sought a report from Maharashtra electoral officer.
