NEW DELHI, 28 April: Congress on Saturday said it reserved the right to approach courts seeking action against PM Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah over alleged repeated model code violations. Abhishek Manu Singhvi said, “We have a right to approach courts seeking action over model code violations… we can exercise that option … the mega policeman has turned a blind eye.” 

Taking a dig at the watchdog, he called it “Election Omission” and wondered whether Modi and Shah are outside the ambit of the model code of conduct, which he dubbed as “Modi code of conduct”.

He claimed Modi and Shah were guilty of violating the poll code under three categories: polarisation of votes, invoking armed forces in campaigns and taking out rallies on election day. “The EC has taken action against several leaders for violating the code based on our complaints. We appreciate that. Since the precedent has been set, why not act against Modi and Shah,” he asked.

To questions on remarks by Congress leaders P C Chacko and Shatrughan Sinha on Yasin Malik and Mohammed Ali Jinnah, respectively, he said while Sinha has clarified his comments, it would be better if Chacko was approached directly on the issue.
