There was no immediate word from the EC on the complaint.
Poonawalla, who is widely known as a Congress sympathiser, filed the complaint, taking objection to Modi''s remarks that the "friends" of the votaries of ''jungle raj'' don't want the people of Bihar to chant "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" and "Jai Shri Ram".
"We have in front of us people who start running Temperature at hearing these chants. The friends of ''jungle raj'' don't want people of this land who worship ''chhathi maiya'' to hail ''Bharat Mata'' or chant ''Jai Shri Ram''," Modi told a rally in Saharsa on Tuesday.
Modi was apparently responding to RJD's ally in Jharkhand, Chief Minister Hemant Soren, who recently told an election rally that he goes insane (dimag kharab ho jata hai) when he hears "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" and "Jai Shri Ram".
What Narendra Modi has gone through and accomplished for India is immensely poignant and deeply transformative
No matter at which end of the spectrum one stands, it cannot be denied that Narendra Modi is a phenomenon
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also asked the ministers to spend the maximum possible time in their constituencies and to implement all the schemes of the government, according to sources
