Supreme Court Rejects Plea to Ban PM Modi from Elections

The Supreme Court refused to entertain a plea seeking to bar Prime Minister Narendra Modi from elections, alleging hate speeches and violations of the Model Code of Conduct during campaigning. Justices Vikram Nath and S.C. Sharma directed the petitioner to approach the relevant authorities for grievance redressal before seeking a writ of mandamus.

The petitioner, Fatima, represented by Advocate Anand S. Jondhale, had sought a direction to the Election Commission to disqualify PM Modi from elections for six years under the Representation of People Act. The plea was withdrawn by the petitioner, and the matter was subsequently dismissed.
