The Supreme Court has deferred hearing of the petition filed by Congress leader Sushmita Dev against PM Modi and Amit Shah for violating the Model Code of Conduct.

The case will next be heard on Friday. The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the Election Commission (EC) based on the Congress application.

A 2-judge bench was hearing the matter on Tuesday when the court asked the petitioners to wait for the EC’s decision.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday was hearing Congress MP Sushmita Dev’s plea against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah for alleged hate speeches and political propaganda in the name of defence forces.

A Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi earlier took note of the submissions made by Congress leader and senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi who filed the plea on behalf of Sushmita Dev.

The petition alleged that despite several complaints, the Election Commission failed to take any action on the alleged violation of the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) by Modi and Shah during their election rallies.

Sushmita Dev had argued that “inaction” by EC on complaints against top BJP leaders was “a sign of invidious discrimination” and was “arbitrary, capricious and impermissible” as it was destructive of the integrity of electoral process.
