India, March 15 -- The Congress has approached the Election Commission with a complaint against the BJP, saying the ruling party has violated the model code of conduct in force after the poll body announced the schedule of the Lok Sabha election 2019.

The Bharatiya Janata Party, the Congress said on Friday, has put up hoardings of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at petrol pumps, railways stations and airports.

Congress leaders RPN Singh said his party had given a representation to the poll body on March 10 about the government's hoardings with Prime Minister Modi's advertisements even though the model code of conduct is in force.
