The Election Commission (EC) has granted its nod for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's two-day official visit to Uttarakhand after the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) had sought the former's view, the Financial Express reports.

In the proposed official visit which starts today (18 May), the Prime Minister will be visiting Kedarnath today, and Badrinath tomorrow (19 May) before returning to the national capital.

While the EC has granted its nod to the PMO, it has also reminded the PMO that the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) is still under force as the last phase of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections which are scheduled to take place on 19 May.
