Lok Sabha Elections 2024 is almost near and political parties are campaigning vigorously and holding public meetings every day across the country. Now, a lawyer has filed a plea against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Delhi High Court for allegedly violating the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) and asked his disqualification from contesting elections. 

PM Modi violated MCC 

Actually, this petition has been filed by a lawyer in Delhi High Court and has requested that PM Modi be banned from contesting elections for 6 years. The petitioner has said in his petition that PM Modi has violated the Model Code of Conduct by allegedly seeking votes in the name of God and place of worship during the campaign for the Lok Sabha elections, hence he should be barred from contesting the elections.

Votes in the name of god and place of worship

This petition has been filed in the Delhi High Court by lawyer Anand S. Jondhale. In this, PM Modi's speech given in Pilibhit on April 9 has been mentioned. Along with this, it has been said that during the speech, PM Modi has appealed to the voters to vote for BJP in the name of Hindu deities and Hindu places of worship as well as Sikh deities and Sikh places of worship.

What is in plea? 

The petitioner has demanded that PM Modi be prevented from contesting any election for 6 years. The petition said that PM Modi also said that copies of Guru Granth Sahib have also been brought back from Afghanistan. The petitioner said in his petition that the PM has not only sought votes in the name of Hindu but also Sikh deities and their places of worship but has also made comments favoring the Muslim community against the opposition political parties. The plea also alleges that Modi made comments against opposite political parties as favoring Muslims, which according to Jondhale, creates hatred and promotes disharmony.
