BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Monday landed in another controversy for addressing a rally in Faizabad with an image of Lord Ram in the backdrop.

The Election Commission has sought a report from the Faizabad office on Modi's rally. Faizabad is located very close to Ayodhya.

"Faizabad should allow a lotus to bloom in the land of Shri Ram. I assure you from Bhagwan Ram's land, I will fight corruption throughout my life. I have seen poverty, that's why I have the courage to say this," Modi said. (ANI)
