The Election Commission of India on Tuesday said it will bring to President Ram Nath Kovind’s notice the alleged Model Code of Conduct violation by Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh.
The ECI had earlier taken cognisance of Mr. Singh’s statement that he was one of the BJP “karyakartas”. “We have found that the remark is prima facie violative of the MCC. Therefore, we will write to the President,” said a senior EC official.
About a week ago, Mr. Singh had told BJP workers they were all party workers and therefore, they should ensure its victory. “Every worker would want Narendra Modi again became the Prime Minister,” he said.
