PM Modi gets clean chit from Election Commission
March 31, 2019
The Election Commission of India (ECI) gave a clean chit to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his address to nation that was given last Wednesday. ECI said that Modi has not violated model code of conduct. It also added that public broadcasters Doordarshan and All India Radio were not involved in the production of the speech given by Modi. The telecast was not live either. A committee was formed in order to look into the matter.
Opposition parties stated that the speech given by Modi was clearly a violation of the model code of conduct. In the speech, Modi had mentioned about the successful test firing of Mission Shakthi, which is India’s anti-satellite mission. He also mentioned about how his BJP government has been striving to uphold national security. CPI (M)’s Sitaram Yechury was one amongst those who filed a complaint with the ECI. After the complaint, the panel went through the details of the speech given by Modi before concluding that he did not violate model code of conduct.

Opposition parties were clearly not happy with the findings of the Election Commission. Social media users also criticised the Election Commission.
“Not acceptable decision of EC. EC's working has been sluggish& long meditating on complaints.God knows how they will conduct this high voltage election.There are no hopes from this EC.Modi govt may go through a series of testings & PM will remain addressing &EC merely a spectator”, tweeted RM Madhwal.
