ECI bans Modi biopic, keeps propaganda channel going

ECI bans Modi biopic, keeps propaganda channel going

NaMo TV

While the Model Code of Conduct has been enforced, there is a lot of material on Narendra Modi. All of his political speeches, interviews and rallies dominate social media and the media. That was not enough for the prime minister. A TV channel called NaMo TV was launched last week and a biopic on Modi is slated for release soon.

The CBFC has approved the contents of the film but the Election Commission of India (ECI) banned its screening till the conclusion of polling, since the code of conduct was in force. The first phase of polling is on April 11.

On 10 April, the ECI also extended the ban order to NaMo TV. However, by the end of the day, the ECI did a volte face and withdrew the ban on NaMo TV
