Election Commission has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address to the nation on the successful test-firing of an anti-satellite missile did not violate provisions of the model code of conduct.

The poll panel took the decision based on the report of a committee of officers which concluded that the prime minister's address did not violate the provisions for 'party in power' in the poll code.

India shot down one of its satellites in space on Wednesday with an anti-satellite missile to demonstrate this complex capability. Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced, making India only the fourth country to have used such a weapon. Mr Modi declared that India has established itself as a global space power after the success of the operation Mission Shakti.

Prime Minister said the missile hit a live satellite flying in a Low Earth Orbit after it traversed a distance of almost 300 km from earth within three minutes of its launch. The announcement was made by Mr Modi in a broadcast to the nation on television, radio and social media.

Several opposition parties had raised the issue to the Election Commission alleging violation of the Model Code of Conduct.
