`Modi Run`, `Shivraj App` violate election code: Congress
Indore: The Madhya Pradesh unit of Congress has demanded a ban on `Shivraj App` and `Modi Run` applications for promoting the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and the BJP`s prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi.
The apps violate the model code of conduct in the poll-bound state, it has said.
In a complaint with the Election Commission, Congress spokesman Narendra Saluja has said that the Shivraj app uses a song which had been made originally for the state government, at the exchequer`s expense, and BJP has appropriated it.
The app provides details of welfare schemes funded by the government, and this violates the Code of Conduct, Saluja has said.
Further, the app displays Chouhan`s picture and BJP`s symbol `lotus` which can mislead the voters, he has said.
Congress has also alleged that BJP is posting anti-Congress messages on social media platforms including Whats App and Facebook.
The party has also taken objection to gaming application `Modi Run`, saying that it can influence the voters.
