Welcoming the FIR registered against Narendra Modi for violating the election law, the Aam Aadmi Party today called BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate a habitual offender who has been consistently violating poll norms and model code of conduct.

“Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP candidate from Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency, Narendra Modi has been consistently violating the election laws and the model code of conduct during the ongoing campaigning.

“The Election Commission’s direction to the Gujarat government for registration of an FIR against him on Wednesday is only an indication of the habitual offences being committed by Mr Modi and the BJP,” AAP said a statement.

The party has already approached the EC for another alleged poll violation in Varanasi when Modi undertook a roadshow before filing his nomination from the temple town on April 24.

“The AAP, in its complaint, has also demanded that the EC should direct the Varanasi administration to add section 171E of the IPC in its FIR, which lays down punishment for bribing the voters.

The party has also brought to the EC’s notice the huge amount of money being spent by Modi and the BJP.

According to details collected by the AAP, the expenditure of Modi’s nomination day alone, including his chopper ride within Varanasi city, was close to Rs six crore,” the statement added.

    Seriously!? These are the 'issues' we should be discussing for the future of our country and its 125cr citizens! Enough of this AAP already. The more Kejri opens his mouth the her he's driving supporters like me. And believe me, we are running away from him in the thousands everyday. We need to be discussing progressive issue, constructive issues. Not this whining. Sick and sad.

    One important flaw in the present election appears that it is being conducted in several phases.The incidents that occur after each phase is likely to affect the next phase of polling.People will be influenced by political debates, media reports,etc after each phase.The events, opinions, etc can be manited by the political parties.Thus the poll results get influenced.Therefore, it would be better to have the voting done in one day across the country or may be in a span of 2 to 3 days.
