New Delhi : Continuing his attack on the Election Commission , Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said that the poll body’s “capitulation before Mr Modi & his gang is obvious to all Indians”.
In a post on social media, Rahul said,’’from Electoral Bonds and EVMs to manipulating the election schedule, NaMo TV, “Modi’s Army” and now the drama in Kedarnath; the Election Commission’s capitulation before Mr Modi and his gang is obvious to all Indians. The EC used to be feared and respected. Not anymore.’’
The comments by Rahul came even as several opposition parties termed the live coverage of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Kedarnath as a violation of the Model Code of Conduct.
Rahul and the Congress party have often charged the EC of being biased in these elections , citing their clean chits to PM Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah on complaints of MCC violation while taking action against other leaders .
