  |   India News

The Congress today approached the Supreme Court against alleged "inaction" by the Election Commission in looking into alleged poll code violation by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah.

Congress parliamentarian Sushmita Dev requested the top court to direct the Election Commission to decide on complaints against PM Modi and Mr Shah within 24 hours. She said the poll body has not acted on the Congress's complaint for three weeks.

The Supreme Court said it will hear the Congress's plea on Tuesday.

In her petition, Ms Dev said PM Modi and Mr Shah used "hate speech" at rallies to polarise voters, and referred to the operations by the armed forces in their "political propaganda" despite the poll body's ban.
