Varanasi: Narendra Modi today launched an all-out war on the Election Commission accusing it of working “under pressure” and showing bias against him and took out a roadshow defying prohibitory orders over the denial of permission for him to hold a rally here.


On a day, Modi, who is contesting from Varanasi, and other top BJP guns traded heavy fire, the Election Commission called a special press conference to reject  accusations of bias and made it clear that it was “not afraid of anyone, any political party or any entity” in doing its job.

Capping an acrimonious day, Modi landed at the Banaras Hindu University campus helipad, near the venue of the party protests,  and held an undeclared 5 km roadshow to the main BJP election office in Sigra, where a large number police and Rapid Action Force personnel were deployed.
