The Congress party has in a scathing remark has questioned the Election Commission’s letting off of Yogi Adityanath with a light rap for his ‘Modi ji ki sena’ remark. It said that the Uttar Pradesh chief minister ‘insults’ the Indian Army and the poll body writes a ‘love letter’ to him.
The opposition party also came down hard on the EC communication to NITI Aayog vice chairman Rajiv Kumar, saying he criticised the party’s proposed minimum income scheme NYAY and the poll body told him ‘don’t do it in future’.
‘Has the MCC now become ‘Modi Code of Conduct’. Adityanath insults the Indian Army — EC writes a love letter to him,’ Congress’ chief spokesperson and communications in- charge Randeep Surjewala tweeted.
क्या MCC अब बन गया है –
‘Modi Code of Conduct’
आदित्यनाथ भारतीय सेना का अपमान करते है – EC उन्हें ‘प्रेम पत्र’ लिखता है।
नीति आयोग VC न्याय योजना को कोसते हैं – EC कहता है ‘आगे से मत करें’।

‘NITI Aayog vice chairman criticises the NYAY scheme — EC says ‘don’t do it in future’,’ he said.
Why is the EC shying away from showing the mirror of truth to those in power, Surjewala asked.
The EC was learnt to have let off Adityanath with a light rap for his ‘Modi ji ki sena’ remark, asking him to be more careful in the future.
Not satisfied with the remarks, the EC was learnt to have told him that be ‘more careful in his utterances in future’, sources had said.
The EC Friday also expressed ‘displeasure’ over the NITI Aayog vice chairman’s remarks against the Congress’ proposed minimum income scheme ‘NYAY’ and said the comments violated the model code of conduct.
In a communication sent to Kumar, the EC asked him to be cautious in future while making statements
