THE Congress complained to the Election Commission against the BJP Thursday for using the slogan “Har Har Modi” in Varanasi from where BJP’s PM candidate Narendra Modi is contesting, saying use of religion and religious places was in violation of the Model Code of Conduct.

Urging the EC to take action against Modi and the BJP, including “de-recognition”, the Congress in its written complaint has said, “It seems to be a deep conspiracy and a perverted electoral strategy of the BJP to to attract followers of God.”

The Congress has also alleged Modi addressed a public rally in Varanasi where the portrait of Lord Shiva was used as a backdrop of the stage, which is not permissible under the Code.
