The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking setting up of special courts across the country to deal with cases relating to breach of Model Code of Conduct (MCC) ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.
Despite the Model Code of Conduct having come into effect from Sunday, several leaders across various political quarters have violated it, as per reports.
On Wednesday, the Election Commission had issued a notice to BJP's Jaipur MP Ramcharan Bohra and Rajasthan Congress' General Secretary Sunil Sharma for putting up posters in different locations across Jaipur depicting different operations done by Indian Armed forces along with their own photos.
It also asked both the politicians to file a reply within three days.
The EC had directed political parties to advise their candidates and leaders to desist from displaying photographs of Wing Commander Varthaman in advertisements as part of their election campaign.
