New Delhi: The BJP today justified its attack on the Election Commission over denial the of permission to Narendra Modi for a rally in Varanasi, saying constitutional institutions have no immunity from criticism.


"Do constitutional institutions have an immunity from criticism? I do not subscribe to the view that merely because an institution is created by the Constitution, it cannot be criticised," BJP leader Arun Jaitley said on his blog.

His remarks came a day after Modi launched an all-out war on the poll panel accusing it of working "under pressure" and showing bias against him.

The BJP's prime ministerial candidate, accompanied by senior party leaders, also took out a roadshow in the temple city yesterday defying prohibitory orders over the denial of permission to him to hold a rally.
