Sources said the ECI has started examining complaints against the speech made by the prime minister.

Congress leader and senior advocate Abhishek Singhvi said it was a “trial of the EC” too and the poll panel risks tarnishing its legacy and abandoning its Constitutional duty by setting a precedent of helpless inaction that will go down in infamy.

The ECI has invoked section 77 of the Representation of the People Act (RPA) and held party presidents responsible, as a first step, to reign in star campaigners.

Allegations under the MCC against PM Modi and Rahul Gandhi have been exchanged with BJP President JP Nadda and Congress president Mallikarjuna Kharge. The ECI has requested a response by 11 am on April 29.

“Political parties will have to take primary responsibility for the conduct of their candidates, especially star campaigners. Campaign speeches by those in high positions carry more serious consequences,” said the EC.
