Cong moves EC against ‘Har Har Modi’ slogan

Cong moves EC against ‘Har Har Modi’ slogan
Demanding de-recognition of BJP and action against Modi, Congress said despite the opposition party denying that ‘Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi’ is its official slogan, party workers in Varanasi continue to use it.

Congress said Modi addressed a public rally in Varanasi where the portrait of Lord Shiva was used as a backdrop of the stage, which is not permissible under the Model Code.

‘Lord Shiva or Mahadev and the ancient Kashi Vishwanath temple at Varanasi have religious sanctity throughout the world. Hindus and all devotees of Lord Mahadev chant ‘Har Har Mahadev, Ghar Ghar Mahadev’ with deep sense of devotion to seek blessings of the Lord. No human being can replace Lord Mahadev in the said chant,’ the Congress memorandum signed by K C Mittal of its Legal Department read.

Congress alleged that use of the slogan seems to be part of BJP’s strategy to ‘present’ Modi as Lord Mahadev to exploit religious sentiments of people for electoral gains.

Referring to media reports, it claimed that BJP has organised 400 mobile vans with LCD TVs installed, along with ‘Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi’ slogan.

It said BJP has now come up with a new slogan ‘Dil mein Modi, ghar mein Modi, Kashi ke kan kan mein Modi (Modi in every heart, Modi in every home; Modi everywhere in Kashi).’
