MUMBAI: The Election Commission of India directed Eros Now, that produced a five-part series about India’s PM Narendra Modi-- Modi: Journey of a Common Man, to stop streaming from it on the platform as it could give the political party, BJP, an unjust advantage in the general elections.
Similarly, EC had not only directed to delay the release of the film, Modi’s biopic, but also its BJP-sponsored TV channel, NaMo TV, to get its content approved by the watchdog before the broadcast and could air live speeches of the PM during the “election silence period” as long as there is no reference to the candidate or constituency going to poll in that particular phase.
The interference of the election watchdog to restrict the media content began last month since its campaigning after it was flooded with complaints. *Under India's election rules, content deemed as helping a party's election campaign is not allowed during the "silent" voting phase.
Supreme Court ordered EC to act tough on complaints of poll violations by political leaders. Any political advertising must be approved by the election authorities so that all spending can be accounted for. *
