New Delhi, Sept.16 : Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Wednesday said the Election Commission should take a final call on whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ should be banned till the Bihar assembly polls are on.

“During the election campaign, when the Code of Conduct is in operation, there are restrictions on everybody else. But whether that applies to the Prime Minister or not, it is for the Election Commission to take a final call,” Yechury told ANI here.

“If this medium is used for election propaganda then it will definitely be a violation,” Yechury added.

Prime Minister Modi has urged people to record voice messages for his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme. The next edition of the programme will be broadcast this Sunday.(ANI)
