GJP cites EC poll code, seeks ban on Narendra Modi biopic

The Gujarat Janchetna Party (GJP) wrote to the Election Commission (EC) demanding ban on upcoming biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, citing violation of the model code of conduct.

“PM Narendra Modi” is scheduled to be released on April 5.

“The code of conduct is in force and it’s the responsibility of the commission to implement it. If the commission is aware of the release date and has not acted upon it then it raises serious doubts about its apolitical, unbiased and neutral attitude,” GJP President Divyesh Chavda said in the letter.

Remarking that the EC would also be aware that film’s release will have an influence on the voters, Chavda said if the ECI did not stop the film’s release, “we will be forced to move the judiciary.”

Chavda said he would wait till March 30 and then “will move” the Gujarat High Court.

Based in Surat, the GJP was formed in 2014. It fielded 30 candidates during the 2017 Assembly elections, all of whom lost. It has fielded seven candidates in Gujarat Lok Sabha seats.
