Lucknow: BSP supremo Mayawati today said the Election Commission should take suo moto cognisance of the ‘manner' in which BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi filed his nomination from Varanasi at the time when sixth phase of polling was being held all over the country, including Uttar Pradesh.
“BJP PM candidate Modi filed his nomination for Varanasi seat yesterday.
At that time polling for the sixth phase was being held all over the country including UP.
The manner in which it was highlighted by the media in a one-sided manner is not right and the EC should take suo moto cognisance,” Mayawati told reporters here.
“EC should take strict steps. It is not in the public interest,” she added Mayawati said that she has received information that that the crowd which assembled during Modi's rally was mostly called from outside the city.
