EC stops the streaming of web series Modi: Journey of a Common Man
The Election Commission wrote a letter to Eros Now to stop streaming of the web series on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The name of the show is Modi - Journey of a Common Man.
In the letter EC wrote, "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." The order said, "On viewing the trailer of the web series, it is apparent that the said web series showcases the different phases of life of PM Shri Narendra Modi, from childhood to becoming a national leader."
The EC said, "That any biopic material in the nature of biography/hagiography sub-serving the purposes of any political entity or any individual connected to it... which has the potential to disturb the level playing field during the elections, should not be displayed."
Recently, EC told the makers of the biopic PM Narendra Modi to stop the release of the film. The EC panel said that the movie will not be released till the General Elections are over as the same disturbs the level-playing field.
