"We have sought action from the Election Commission. There are sections in Indian Penal Code under which this is punishable, he said."
New Delhi, April 11 - The Congress Friday filed a complaint with the Election Commission over BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi hiding his marital status in affidavits submitted in earlier polls.

We have given a plea to the Election Commission. In his affidavit in Vadodara -, Narendra Modi informed that he is married. Prior to that, none of his affidavits mention this. It is hence proven those affidavits were wrong, Congress leader Kapil Sibal said after lodging the complaint.

We have sought action from the Election Commission. There are sections in Indian Penal Code under which this is punishable, he said.

Modi wrote Jashodaben as the name of his wife in an affidavit while filing his nomination papers in Vadodara, where he is also contesting apart from Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi constituency. The Bharatiya Janata Party - leader had so far remained silent on the issue of his marital status.
