The Election Commission of India on Thursday let off PM Narendra Modi and gave its third clean chit to Prime minister over alleged MCC Violation complaint. The Poll Office said PM Modi in his speech in Rajasthan did not violate the model code of conduct.

PM Modi during a rally in Barmer town of Rajasthan has invoked the army and said the nuclear bomb is not kept to be used for Diwali. Addressing a poll rally on April 21, Modi made a remark while slamming Pakistan.

However, the remarks invoked sharp criticism from the opposition who levelled charges against Narendra Modi of using Indian Army and related issued in his rallies to seek votes. The opposition party also approached the Poll Body seeking action against PM Modi for his alleged violation of the model code of conduct.

This is the third clean chit by the Poll Body to the prime minister in connection with an alleged violation of the model code of conduct.

While earlier in the day, Supreme Court directed the Election Commission to decide before May 6, the 9 complaints filed by Congress party against PM Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah for allegedly violating the Model Code of Conduct.

The Top Court order came on the plea filed by Congress MP Sushmita Dev seeking the court’s direction over ‘Inaction’ of the Poll Commission.

It should be noted that the Poll Commission in the past 2 days have granted ‘clean chits’ to PM Modi over his election speech which he made in poll rallies. EC said that PM Narendra Modi speeches in Latur and Wardha district of Maharashtra do not violate the model code of conduct.

PM Modi while addressing a poll rally on April 9 at Latur district of Maharashtra urged first-time voters to cast their votes for the CRPF Jawans who were killed in Pulwama Terror Attack. However, the poll commission does not find the statement, a violation of the model code of conduct.

Congress had moved to the Poll Commission with multiple complaints against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. General Elections 2019 is being across seven phases starting April 11 to May 19. The remaining 169 Lok Sabha seats will go to polls in remaining three phases.

Counting of the votes will be held on May 23.
