The Supreme Court, on Monday, agreed to hear a plea of Congress MP Sushmita Dev on Tuesday alleging that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah have been violating the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) during their campaigning for Lok Sabha polls.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said that it would hear the petition of Ms Dev on Tuesday. Senior advocate A M Singhvi, appearing for Sushmita Dev, alleged that PM Modi and Amit Shah have violated the Model Code of Conduct and the Election Commission of India (ECI) is not acting on her complaint. Singhvi said that four weeks have passed since the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) was enforced in the country and both the Prime Minister and the BJP chief have been allegedly violating the code. To this, the bench said that it will hear the plea on Tuesday.
