New Delhi: The BJP Friday requested the Election Commission to withdraw its FIR order against party leader Narendra Modi for violating the model code of conduct while demanding that Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi be booked for a speech in Himachal Pradesh.


The Bharatiya Janata Party wrote to the poll panel after Gujarat Police registered a case against the state's chief minister for violation of the poll code.

The poll panel had ordered that an FIR be filed under section 126 of the Representation of the People Act against Modi for displaying the party's symbol (lotus) after casting his vote in Vadodara, and for addressing media persons April 30.

The letter, written by R. Ramakrishna, convenor of the BJP's election cell, said Modi had to take the lotus in his hand, after removing it from his lapel where he usually wears it, to cast his vote.
