KOLKATA: The Election Commission will examine the CD of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's election speech in West Bengal where he criticised Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for "violating" the model code of conduct.

"We will send the video CD to EC. They will see what is to be done," West Bengal's Chief Electoral Officer Sunil Gupta said.

He was asked to comment on Modi's speech in Krishnagar where he criticised Banerjee saying she "violated" the model code of conduct as the chief secretary replied to a showcause notice issued to her by the Election Commission.

"Either TMC, or its lawyer or Mamataji herself should have given the reply. But if it is true that chief secretary has sent the reply, it was a violation of the model code and misuse of government machinery," Modi had said earlier in the day.
