The Election Commission has given another clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi with regard to a complaint concerning alleged violation of Model Code of Conduct in a speech at Nanded, Maharashtra.

In a statement, the commission said, the matter has been examined in detail and after examination of complete transcript of speech sent by the Returning Officer, Nanded Parliamentary Constituency, the Commission is of the considered view that in this matter no such violation of poll norms took place.

The Election Commission has found no violation of model code or its instructions on armed forces in two speeches delivered by BJP president Amit Shah in West Bengal and Maharashtra.

The Commission concluded that it is of the considered view that in this matter, no such violation of MCC or ECI’s instructions is made out.

The Election Commission gave an extension till May 7 to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi for replying to its notice, which was issued over his remark that the Narendra Modi government has enacted a new law which permitted tribals to be shot.

Citing his speech made in Shahdol, Madhya Pradesh on April 23, the commission on May 1 had issued a showcause notice to Rahul Gandhi highlighting a provision of the Model Code of Conduct which bars “unverified” allegations against political opponents.
