NEW DELHI: As the battle of ballots enter its home stretch in the land of Mahabharata – Haryana – both the Congress and the BJP on Monday knocked on the Election Commission’s (EC) door to complain against each other.

While citing the Model Code of Conduct violation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the EC to look into the issue of Robert Vadra’s controversial land deal with DLF, the Congress formally complained to the EC alleging Code violation against Modi’s radio programme ‘Mann KI Baat’. Assembly polls in Haryana and Maharashtra are scheduled to be held on October 15.

While addressing an election campaign in Haryana, Modi had raised the issue of Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda clearing land deal between Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Vadra and the DLF and hoped that the EC would take a serious note of the state government’s action.

However, Hooda and the Congress have denied Modi’s allegations.
