New Delhi, May 10: Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley on Saturday slammed the Election Commission, saying Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi was allowed to conduct his roadshow in the same area where BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi wasn't allowed to hold his rally on May 8. He said the justification that Modi's rally was not allowed because of security reasons was not true as permitting the Congress to go ahead with the Rahul Gandhi roadshow has proved.

"The Election Commission will have to live with this reality that Narendra Modi wasn't allowed to hold a rally in Beniyabagh because of political reasons. All three other parties (SP, BSP and Congress) have been given permission," Jaitley, who contested from Amritsar in this Lok Sabha election, said.

Jaitley said all three parties except the BJP were given fair treatment

On Thuerday, Modi held a massive road-show in the Holy City from where he is contesting on May 12, the final day of this year's general election. On Friday, Arvind Kejriwal of the Aam Aadmi Party held his roadshow in what is said to be the venue of the biggest battle of this election. On Saturday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was also set to hold a rally in Varanasi.

Kejriwal will take on Modi from this constituency while the Congress has fielded Ajay Rai.
