Indian Election Commission accuses Narendra Modi of election code violation.
India's Election Commission has accused the main opposition BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi of violating the election code.
He’s said to have violated poll laws by flashing his party's symbol and making a political speech while voting was going on in the seventh phase of the election.
Modi addressed journalists and supporters after casting his vote in his home state of Gujarat and later posted a picture of his inked finger on Twitter.
India's general election, with 814 million eligible voters, is the world's biggest exercise in democracy and the governing Congress party is battling the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party for power with Modi ahead in all opinion polls.
