    New Delhi: With the last phase of the Lok Sabha elections underway in Kolkata, on Sunday, the Trinamool Congress has hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, complaining to the Election Commission against the PM’s visit to Kedarnath in Uttarakhand, citing a violation of the Model Code of Conduct.

    In a letter written by party leader Derek O’Brien, the party complained that while the event was being widely televised, it was “a gross violation of the Model Code of Conduct," adding that Modi’s announcement of the master plan for the Kedarnath temple was “unethical and morally incorrect."

    The Trinamool Congress which had, since the launch of its campaign under West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, steadily attacked the BJP and PM Modi, also launched a steady attack against the poll panel, stating that the Election Commission was “blind and deaf to the gross violation of the MCC."

    While the BJP has been steadily tweeting pictures of PM Modi meditating in Kedarnath, speaking to the media in Kedarnath, Modi said, “I thank the Election Commission for granting me these two days. I have been lucky to visit the land of spiritual awakening many times. When Kedarnath was struck by floods, I came here and deeply wished that I should do some work here."
