Imphal, February 16 2017:
Peoples Resurgence and Justice Alliance (PRJA) has filed a complaint to the Election Commission of India (ECI) against the BJP's decision to hold Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally at Kangla Fort on February 25 .
A press release issued by PRJA today stated that the decision is in complete violation of the guidelines set by the ECI's model code of conduct which prohibits use of religious places, temples etc for election purposes.
According to Erendro Leichombam, the party's convenor, Kangla is a sacred place for the people of Manipur and the Meiteis in particular and to even plan such an election related event inside the historic Kangla Fort is an insult, it added.
PRJA declared that the recent plan of the BJP to hold the rally inside Kangla which will be participated by Narendra Modi is in violation of the norms laid down by the ECI and further requested it to look into the matter.
The ECI has assured that they will look into the matter and provide a response within 48 hours, it added.
