TMC to complain to EC if Modi’s meditation is televised: Mamata

BARUIPUR (WB): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said the Trinamool Congress will complain to the Election Commission if Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meditation in Kanyakumari is televised, claiming that it would be a violation of the election Model Code of Conduct (MCC).

Modi is scheduled to meditate at Rock Memorial, a monument built in tribute to Swami Vivekananda, in Kanyakumari following the culmination of the Lok Sabha polls campaign on May 30, according to BJP leaders.

“We will complain. He can meditate, but it cannot be aired on television,” she said, claiming that this will amount to “violation of the MCC.” “Does anyone have to get cameras for doing meditation?” she asked, claiming that it was a way of canvassing during the silence period between the end of campaign and the poll date.
