gujarat police files complaint against modi

Ahmedabad : Gujarat Police Wednesday registered a complaint against BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for violating the model code of conduct, an official said here.

The complaint was lodged at the Ahmedabad City police station.

The action followed a directive from the Election Commission after the opposition Congress raised objections to a press conference addressed by Modi after casting his vote at the Ranip polling station in Gandhinagar Lok Sabha constituency.

After voting, Modi flashed a paper 'lotus', the Bharatiya Janata Party's symbol, and addressed a press conference a short distance from the polling station which the Congress alleged was a violation of the election code.

Similar complaints were lodged against some TV channels that had telecast Modi's press conference from the venue.

Earlier today, the Congress said the Gujarat government had not obeyed the Electuion Commission directive to lodge a police complaint against Chief Minister Narendra Modi for poll code violation.


Congress general secretary Ajay Maken said the poll panel had given the state government time to file a first information report (FIR) till 6 p.m. Wednesday "but no action had been taken".

"We appeal to the Election Commission to ask the Gujarat government not to come under pressure of the chief minister," Maken told media persons here.

The Election Commission Wednesday instructed Gujarat authorities to lodge a police complaint against Modi, BJP's prime ministerial candidate, for displaying a paper lotus near a polling booth and violating the poll code.
