EC gives Modi clean chit, says no violation of MCC was done
The Election Commission on Friday gave a clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
PM Modi had announced the successful test of the anti-satellite missile (A-SAT) in his address to the nation on Wednesday. This was condemned by many parties with the opposition calling it as a violation of model code of conduct and asking EC to take action against it.
A committee was set up to examine whether Modi's speech broke the modal code of conduct which is in force for Lok Sabha polls. However, EC said there was no violation of it in the PM's speech.
