ECI gives clean chit to PM Modi’s ASAT address

March 29, 2019

New Delhi: The Election Commission of India (ECI) this morning gave a clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his address on ‘Mission Shakti’. The poll panel had set up a committee to examine whether Modi’s speech broke the Model Code of Conduct which is in force for Lok Sabha polls. ECI said there was no violation of Model Code in PM’s speech.

After Opposition parties alleged that Modi’s address to the nation on successful Anti-Satellite (ASAT) test was in violation of Code of Conduct, the ECI held “internal consultation” over the issue. The panel sought full speech of Modi from the Centre to address the issue.

The ECI directed a committee of officers to examine the matter immediately in the light of the Model Code. The test was conducted at 11.16 am on Wednesday and the PM made the announcement after an hour. The timing of this address to the nation had been questioned by Opposition parties who said that it was done to gain political traction.

    Quite expected! All thinks from supreme court, CBI, police, Election commission are under the fat thumb of the CHOR DICTATOR, the Feku Modi! You can’t bring him down when he still has power! Democracy is in great danger!

  2. The Opposition’s attempts to discredit Prime Minister Narendra Modi even on matters of national pride about ISRO’s great achievements have come a cropper with the Election Commision’s ruling that the PM’s speech eulogising our scientists didn’t violate the code of conduct in place for the ensuing Lok Sabha polls.

    The Election Commission said on Friday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to the nation on the ful demonstration of the anti-satellite missile capability on Wednesday did not violate the model code of conduct.

    It arrived at the decision on the basis of a report submitted by a committee of it’s officers.
