PM Modi Waits In Queue, Casts His Vote In Gujarat; His Mother Hiraba Also Casts Her Ballot

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has casted his vote today at 115 number polling booth in Gujarat.  After casting the vote, he walked through the crowd at the booth showing his inked finger.  This has become controversy as Congress has alleged that PM walk ahead of assembly elections should be considered as a road show and proper action must be taken against this.  He waited in the queue to enroll his vote at the booth and later he came out of the booth and met his older brother Somabhai Modi who was also there to vote.

PM touched his brother’s feet as a respect and they both shook hands.  His mother, Hiraba also registered her vote in the early morning today in Gandhinagar.  PM Modi who hails from Gujarat ruled the state for 13 long years as Chief Minister before he took charge as the Prime Minister after 2014 national elections.  He did a thorough campaign in Gujarat asking the people not just to give them overwhelming majority but also ensure that the party wins in every polling booth across the state.

Congress accuses PM Modi of violating the rules

BJP has been in power in the state of Gujarat since 22 years now and is now facing a tough fight with Congress after its chief Rahul Gandhi made an aggressive campaign in the state.  It is a matter of prestige for BJP to stay in the power in the state of Gujarat citing the 2019 national elections.  Coming to the controversy created by PM Modi by walking after casting the vote as claimed by the Congress, the party has said that PM has violated the rules and tried to influence the voters and asked Election Commission to take proper action against him just as it reacted against Rahul Gandhi who gave an interview to a Gujarat Channel.  However, so far no action was taken against PM by FICCI.

Randeep Surjewala, Congress MLA alleged that, “PM Modi’s sinking ship can only be saved by support from the Election Commission. The EC has now emerged as a frontal organization of the BJP.”
