Congress seeks action against PM Modi over ‘Muslim League’ remarks

New Delhi: The Congress on Monday approached Election Commission alleging breach of the Model Code of Conduct after PM Modi’s remarks on the party’s election manifesto, Scroll reported.

PM Modi told an election rally in Ajmer on Saturday that the manifesto of Congress “reflects the Muslim League’s ideology and every page reeks of breaking India into pieces”.

“The Leftists have taken over whatever was left of this manifesto bearing the stamp of the Muslim League,” Modi was quoted as saying, adding “Today, Congress is left with neither principles nor policies. It seems as if Congress has given everything on contract and has outsourced the entire party.”

The Congress leaders including Salman Khurshid, Rajya Sabha MP Mukul Wasnik, Pawan Khera and Gurdeep Sappal met EC officials bringing up that PM Modi’s comments were fully in violation of the Model Code of Conduct, adding that it is punishable under section 153 of Indian Penal Code, The Indian Express reported.

‘By propagating false, uninformed and vexatious claims, Shri Narendra Modi has attempted to evoke an emotional response from the electorate by using the horrors of Partition in a bid to polarise voters,’ the Congress was quoted as stating, seeking action against PM Modi.

‘It is very sad that in his speeches Narendra Modi has called the Congress manifesto a bundle of lies,” Khurshid was quoted as saying on Monday.

However, the prime minister repeated his remarks against the Congress on Monday at an election rally in Chhattisgarh, the report said citing India Today.

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge called out the PM Modi’s statements saying that ‘ideological ancestors’ of the Prime Minister and home Minister Amit Shah threw their weight behind the British Raj and the Muslim League opposing the freedom struggle.
