Lodge police complaint against Modi, orders EC
Wednesday April 30, 2014 3:27 PM, IANS

The Election Commission Wednesday instructed Gujarat authorities to lodge a police complaint against BJP leader Narendra Modi for displaying a paper lotus near a polling booth and violating the Model Code of Conduct.

The commission, in a letter addressed to the chief secretary of the state and the director general of police in Gandhinagar, also asked them to register a First Information Report (FIR) against television channels and electronic media which "carried the proceedings or images".

A complaint was filed by the Congress after Modi interacted with the media persons near a polling booth and flashed his inked finger along with a paper lotus flower - the BJP's election symbol - displaying it throughout the interaction with media persons.
