In spite of the Election Commission‘s advise to the political parties and the candidates to refrain from using any activities of defense forces or Indian army in its political propaganda,  Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday urged the first time voters to contribute their first vote to the Pulwama martyrs and Balakot air strike violating the Election Commission’s order.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was addressing the first time voters in Aurangabad on Tuesday ahead of the Lok Sabha Polls when he appealed to the voters using the apolitical strategy.

The speech brought a storm of complaints from the opposition of the EC’s negligence towards the violation of orders and conduct by the ruling party and the Prime Minister. After the complaints from the opposition, EC took cognizance of the PM’s remarks. The EC has sought Maharashtra electoral officer to submit a report of the speech at its earliest.

The EC responded when the opposition parties claimed that EC is reluctantly avoiding the speeches by the ruling party. The parties also said that the politicization of the sacrifices of our security forces and the CRPF is deplorable.

Along with the Congress, CPM politburo member Nilotpal Basu and Mehbooba Mufti, former Jammu & Kashmir CM, also moved to the EC against the PM’s remarks. Basu urged the poll panel to “strongly initiate” actions against the ruling party and stop the election campaign from being polarised and vitiated.

The opposition slammed the Prime minister for politicizing the death of 40 CRPF personnel in the Pulwama attack and the retaliatory bombing by the Indian Air Force on the JeM’s Balakot camp in Pakistan as the surgical strike 2.0.

Sharing the stage for the first time after 2014 polls with Shiv Sena, PM Narendra Modi emphasized the emotions of the voters saying that they will be proud if they press the lotus or the bow-arrow button while voting. Your vote will directly go to the Modi’s account if you press either of the two buttons. Modi addressed Uddhav Thackeray as his “younger brother” and praised BalaSaheb Thackeray, Late Sena chief.

In utter disgust of Election Commission’s ignorance to the violation, Kapil Sibal, the former Union Minister said, “Everybody knows why PM is politicizing the speech and using apolitical propaganda and it is unfortunate that Election Commission is still not taking any action against it.”
