Patna, Sept. 18 (ANI): Janata Dal (United) leader K.C Tyagi on Friday dubbed the decision of the Election Commission on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Mann ki Baat’ as ‘painful and disappointing’.
“This decision of the Election Commission is painful and disappointing. I would like to respect it being it a constitutional organisation, but I am very much disappointed and upset with the decision,” Tyagi told ANI.
“We are not pleased by the order given on ‘Mann ki Baat’. Government facilities are being used in ‘Mann ki Baat’. It is an advertisement for BJP that violates the model code of conduct. We hoped that we will get justice but I am disappointed,” he added.
The Election Commission on Friday rejected the plea of the Congress and its alliance partners, seeking a ban on Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Mann ki Baat’ radio programme, alleging that it could be used to directly influence the outcome of the Bihar Assembly elections. (ANI)
