EC clears PM’s Mann ki Baat on Sunday
The Election Commission (EC) has given its nod to the PM Narendra Modi’s ‘Mann ki Baat’ radio broadcast on Sunday with instructions that the programme should adhere to the Model Code of Conduct in force due to Assembly polls in five states. The I&B Ministry had approached EC to clear the broadcast of the monthly radio address due to the Model Code.
Sources said the EC gave its nod to the address on Wednesday with instructions that the Model Code should not be violated. “Nothing should be said that influences voters in the five poll-bound states. These are the instructions that have been given while clearing the address,” a source said.
