Congress alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s election rally on February 10 violated the model code of conduct and demanded a case be filed against BJP leaders in this regard. A delegation of 24 party leaders, led by state Congress president Kishore Upadhyay submitted a memorandum in this regard to state Chief Electoral Officer Radha Raturi yesterday, party sources said.
In the memorandum, the party claimed a case has been registered against Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat for violating the model code even as they had permission for their roadshow.
But, no such action was taken for Modi’s rally in Haridwar’s Rishikul grounds for which BJP did not have any permission, Congress complained in the memorandum.
