Are Modi and his cadre snubbing Model Code of Conduct?
Model Code of Conduct laid by the Election commission of India which prohibits them from showcasing government's work as their party is applicable for both ruling and opposition at the same time. But it seems like the politicians in BJP and a few others from political parties are least bothered to follow the laid rules. Both the PM and the leaders of the saffron party are all busy claiming that the future of India is in the hands of Narendra Modi.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath can be the best-quoted example with his recent suspension from campaigning pertaining to the religious-based comments he made in the public rally in Meerut. He also called the Indian Army ‘Modiji ki Sena’ without a care about the Model Code of Conduct. Above all, the supremo of the nation also joined the bandwagon with his references made regarding the recent surgical strike.
During his election speech in Gujarat, Modi said that the BJP government is a 'Mard sarkar' which hits the enemies without fear referring to the surgical strikes. He indirectly pushed this under the BJP’s account. Modi went on taking the BC community reference to hit back at the Congress. He also openly claimed Gujarat will not prosper if he doesn't become the PM again.
His recent financial assistance for Gujarat is one more instance which has received rife criticism from the political circles all around the country. The way Election commission is turning a blind eye towards PM's and BJP leader’s mistakes are no doubt bringing down the dignity of the institution.
