We have brought similar incidents of his violations to your notice earlier in the past too. The Commission, however, seems to think that Shri Modi and Shri Amit Shah are above the electoral process and the Model code of conduct does not apply to them. This has been noted by myriad cartoonists, newspaper editorials and commentators. I hope that the Election Commission will now prove them wrong and initiate prompt and suitable action against Shri Modi.
The vicious targeting by the Modi government and BJP state governments of intellectuals and activists, who support the cause of Dalit and oppressed communities, is intensifying. This is confirmed by the treatment being meted out to noted intellectual Anand Teltumbde in the Bhima Koregaon case. Teltumbde has been falsely charged in this case when he was not even present at the event. Teltumbde is a senior Professor and author of many critically acclaimed books.
