Terming Narendra Modi’s video message on polling day as a violation of the Model Code of Conduct, Congress on Monday asked the Election Commission to take cognisance of it.

“How can the channels show Modi’s speech on Monday in violation of the code of conduct? The Election Commission should take cognisance immediately,” Congress leader and incharge of AICC Communication Department Ajay Maken tweeted.

With polling in Varanasi underway, the BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate, in his message, spoke about the ‘Ganga Jamuna tehzeeb’ of the holy city and appealed to its voters there to reflect its spirit of unity and harmony through their votes.

“I appeal to people to cast their votes in the last phase of polls with the same zeal and enthusiasm they have shown so far. My brothers and sisters in Kashi, the honour of Kashi is in peace, harmony and unity….We should love each other and take everybody along,” Modi, who is a candidate from the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat, said.

      Modi knew on his previous complaint FIR in hinagar that he can't make any annoucement. He has repeatedly shown disrespect to EC norms and have done such gimmicks every single polling day
