"Prime Minister is proved to be a repeat offender of MCC and rules for which he deserves not clean chit but multiple gag orders," said Sharma.
He also attacked Election Commission (EC) saying, the EC is giving clean chits to PM Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, thus is not fulfilling its constitutional mandate and duty.
