The Election Commission on Saturday, 20 April, asked Eros Now to stop the online streaming of a web series on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, till further notice, reported PTI.
In its notice, the poll panel has cited its 10 April order, banning a biopic on Modi, to place a similar bar on the web series titled "Modi - Journey of a Common Man".
According to news agency ANI, the notice issued by the EC read: “It was brought to our notice that a web series Modi-Journey of a Common Man, having 5 episodes, is available on your platform. You're directed to stop forthwith the online streaming & remove all connected content of the series till further orders.”
"In view of the admitted facts and material available on record, this web series being an original web series on Shri Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister and a political leader and a prospective candidate in the current general elections to the Lok Sabha, cannot be exhibited," said the poll panel.
