Modi's attack on EC under scanner
A video tape of BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's address at a rally in West Bengal, where he took on the Election Commission, has been sent to the poll panel in Delhi, an official said Monday.
The Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sunday attacked the Election Commission for "failing to prevent rigging and violence" in several states at a rally in Asansol in Burdwan district.
In a strong verbal assault on the commission, which has drawn much flak from the state's opposition parties on the conduct of the April 30 balloting in nine Lok Sabha constituencies in West Bengal, Modi said the panel should work without bothering about "which government has appointed it".
Modi also dared the poll panel to slap cases against him if it did not like what he was saying.
Amit Ray Chaudhury, officer on special duty in the chief electoral officer's office, here confirmed the move.
"We sent the video of his Asansol rally to the commission in Delhi Sunday evening," he told reporters here Monday.
