Curbs on PM's visit

The Election Commission (EC) on Saturday closely monitored Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Dehradun, to address a Combined Commanders Conference in the capital of poll-bound Uttarakhand.

The Chief Electoral Officer was instructed to keep a tab on the conference and to ensure that the prime minister’s visit to the city for the conclave did not violate the Model Code of Conduct.

“The official visit shall not be combined with any public meeting. No media briefing, media interaction, press release or announcements in connection with serving soldiers or ex-servicemen, which may affect the voters in the five poll-going states, including Uttarakhand, should be made,” the EC Special Principal Secretary, R K Srivastava, wrote to Defence Secretary G Mohan Kumar ahead of the conference.
