CPI MP Binoy Viswam writes to CEC; demands action over PMO's advertisement; cites violation

CPI MP Binoy Viswam has written to the Election Commission, asking to seek an explanation from the Prime Minister's office over the violation of a poll code. The MP has written to the Chief Election Commissioner and has said that the PMO has made an advertisement stating, 'support those who put India first, support BJP through micro-donations.'

The leader has further added that on clicking the link, one is directed to another page that solicits funds ranging from Rs 5 to Rs 1,000 for the BJP. The allegation that Binoy Viswam has put down in the letter is that this is a misuse of power and position, which is condemnable.
