The Communist Party of India (CPI) on Wednesday urged Election Commission not to allow the release of a biopic titled 'PM Narendra Modi' during the Lok Sabha elections, saying it will violate the Model Code of Conduct.

In a letter to Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora, CPI General Secretary S Sudhakar Reddy said media reports suggested that the Vivek Oberoi-starrer is slated to release on April 12.

"The first phase of polling for the Lok Sabha elections starts on 11th April, 2019 and will go on till 19th May as per the election schedule. Release of this biopic during the election season, particularly during the period of polling is nothing but a campaign strategy and will surely influence the voting pattern," Reddy said.

"This should not be allowed and the release of the film be banned forthwith. This will be violation of Model Code of Conduct. We request the CEC to stop the release of this biopic till the results are announced on May 23," he said.
