Complaint to EC against TV channels
The Chief Election Commissioner,
Election Commissioners &
Deputy Election Commissioners
Aam Aadmi party is shocked to see the gross violation of the MCC by media houses & the ostrich approach of EC today on 12.5.2014 wherein TV News channels have been broadcasting Shri Narendra Modi’s live speeches. Headlines Today, IBN, Aajtak, Zee news etc telecast these speeches at 1130 am. The whole of India is aware that Shri Modi is a contestant in Varanasi & broadcasting his political speeches today amounts to influencing the voters of Varanasi.
May we submit to the EC that MCC is applicable on all citizens of India and media houses are no exception. By not initiating suo-moto action against these media channels, is the EC indicating its submissiveness? During an election, it is the EC’s bounded duty to conduct it in a free & fair manner. Why isn’t the EC issuing any direction to these news channels to stop the broadcast forthwith? Why is the EC silent on this violation?
We hereby demand the EC to take strong & exemplary action against the erring TV Channels immediately and upholding its role of the sentinel of the constitution during polls.
Aam Aadmi party hopes this complaint will wake the EC from its stupor and the people will witness consummate action instantaneously.
