EC to examine Modi’s speech on Mamata

modiKolkata, (IANS) The Election Commission (EC) will examine the CD of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech where he criticised West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for misusing the state machinery, an official said.

“We will send the video CD to EC,” Chief Electoral Officer Sunil Gupta said here.

In an election rally in Krishnanagar on Sunday, Modi accused Banerjee of misusing the state machinery by asking the state’s chief secretary to reply to the EC’s showcause notice on her behalf.

“Polls will come and go, but if these institutions are destroyed, the country will not be able to be run. The EC gave notice to you and it was your responsibility to put forth your stand, your views but instead you are saying, you will see the EC after May 19 (day of counting),” he said

Modi was referring to Banerjee’s April 14 outburst against the poll panel after getting a show-cause notice for violation of the model code of conduct.
