The congress demanded registration an FIR against BJP ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for road show in Varanasi was undertaken without requisite permission which was violation of the model poll code.

In its complaint to Chief Election Cmmissioner Nasim Zaidi, the congress said that Modi’s road show covered three assembly constituencies of Varanasi North, Varanasi South and Varanasi Cantt and was undertaken without the permission of the competent authority.

The party also said Modi’s visit to the Kashi Vishwanath temple and Kaal Bhairav temple during the road show was also undertaken without requisite permission of  EC.

It further added that “It is requested that action may be taken and FIR (First Information Report) registered against all the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) leaders including Modi who were part of the road show.”

Modi’s road show in his Parliamentary constituency came on a day when polling in 49 constituencies for the sixth and penultimate phase of the Assembly elections took place.
