Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing an election rally in Delhi

Congress's east UP in-charge Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is holding a roadshow in Delhi along with former CM Sheila Dikshit, ahead of PM Narendra Modi's rally in Ramlila Maidan.

The Supreme Court will today hear the Congress party’s complaint against Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Corrupt No. 1’ remark at former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. In the complaint, lawmaker Sushmita Dev has said the Election Commission's clean chits to the leader are “arbitrary and opaque”.

Dev’s affidavit said speeches given by Modi and Shah are also punishable under section 153A of the Indian Penal Code as they "blatantly promote disharmony and feelings of enmity on the grounds of religion and such acts are also likely to prejudice the maintenance of public harmony and tranquility between religious communities".

Meanwhile, Delhi will see today see Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress’ eastern UP in-charge Priyanka Gandhi Vadra lock horns. While Modi will hold a rally in Ramlila Maidan, Priyanka Gandhi will campaign in North-east and South Delhi seats.
