The state Congress has demanded details from the state election commission regarding expenses of NaMo TV, the channel apparently named after Chief Minister Narendra Modi, and its sources of funding among other information.
In its letter to Chief Electoral Officer Anita Karwal, Congress alleged that the channel was "misrepresenting" facts to show the Centre in poor light. "The channel is showing the Union government in poor light. Its source of funding, details about its expenses must be sought by the chief electoral officer to verify whether it violates the Model Code of Conduct or not. If it violates the Model Code of Conduct, the airing of the channel should be stopped immediately," said Congress election coordination committee chairman Babubhai Patel.
Meanwhile, BJP's election legal cell convenor Parindu Bhagat has also dashed a missive to the EC seeking ban on advertisements by various ministries of the UPA government in newspapers, AIR and Doordarshan (Girnar) to ensure free and fair polls.
