0 12

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a plea seeking action against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his alleged hate speech during the Lok Sabha poll campaign. A bench of Justices Vikram Nath and SC Sharma on Tuesday “advised” the petitioner to approach the “competent authority” (i.e. the Election Commission).

Advocate Anand S Jondhale, appearing for petitioner Fatima, had on Tuesday told the apex court that Modi was promoting communal polarisation during the Lok Sabha poll campaign in violation of the Representation of the People Act, 1951. Which is against the model code of conduct. Advocate Jondhale also sought a six-year ban on Modi from contesting elections.
