Shiv Sena (UBT) President and former Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has raised concerns over the Election Commission of India, demanding action against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah for allegedly soliciting votes based on religious appeals.

Thackeray highlighted Amit Shah’s recent electoral campaign promise in Madhya Pradesh, where he pledged free pilgrimages to the Ram Temple in Ayodhya if the voters supported the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Referencing past incidents, Thackeray recalled Modi’s remarks during the Karnataka Assembly elections, where he allegedly urged voters to chant ‘Bajrang Bali Ki Jai’ while casting their votes.

“In the past, invoking religion during elections was unprecedented. It was only Hindu Hriday Samrat Balasaheb Thackeray who coined slogans like ‘Garv se kaho hum Hindu hain’ and ‘Mandir wahin banayenge.’ Yet, he was banned from voting for six years on grounds of ‘corrupt’ electoral practices,” Thackeray emphasized.

Questioning the Election Commission’s approach, Thackeray asked whether any modifications had been made since then and highlighted the perceived double standards in handling electoral conduct.

“Why the different yardstick now? Does the ECI follow separate rules for Modi and Shah? Why the double standards for the BJP and others?” Thackeray queried, seeking clarity on the apparent inconsistency in enforcing electoral regulations.
