New Delhi : BSP president Mayawati Thursday lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “gross misuse of power and machinery” in addressing the nation without prior permission of the Election Commission and hoped that the poll body will act in an exemplary manner.
She was referring to Modi’s address to the nation on Wednesday announcing India’s successful test of an anti-satellite missile that put the country in an exclusive club of space super powers.
“The EC has formed a committee to examine the content of PM’s address yesterday but the real issue is why & how the PM addressed the country without its prior permission. It is the gross misuse of power & machinery for the electoral benefits. EC must act in an exemplary manner,” the BSP leader tweeted.
