Congress again goes to EC, this time with two complaints against BJP

BHOPAL: Congress on Friday submitted two separate memorandums on different issues to the Election Commission, one in New Delhi and another at the EC office here. At Delhi, MP from Guna Jyotiraditya Scindia asked for deployment of “senior level officers and armed force of CISF/CRPF/BSF in by-elections in Kolaras and Mungaoli”. The assembly bypolls in Madhya Pradesh are scheduled for February 24.
Over the past one month, Congress has submitted more than half-a-dozen complaints of violation of model code of conduct against ruling BJP.
Here in the state capital on Friday, state Congress complained to the EC against BJP government holding a Kisan Sammelan (Farmers’ Convention on February 12) amounts to enticement and would violate model code of conduct before the bypolls. Congress argued that the BJP government can hold the farmers meeting at any time after bypolls which is scheduled for February 24. But organising a farmers’ rally so close to the Mungaoli and Kolaras by-elections is against the norms of model code of conduct.
In his letter to chief election commissioner OP Rawat, Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia wrote, “To ensure free and fair polling, I urge the Commission to deploy enough armed forces from a centrally governed agency like CISF/CRPF/BSF at the highly sensitive polling booths of both assembly constituencies, as the state police can easily be influenced by the BJP, given that it is ruling party in the state.”
Scindia’s memorandum mentioned that model code of conduct has been violated and the Congress party has submitted numerous complaints. “In view of this frightening situation and given that there is history of attempted booth capturing by the BJP at some polling booths in both these assembly areas. We are confident that they will attempt to do the same in this election, if enough armed security forces are not deployed. There are 114 highly sensitive polling booths in Mungaoli and 55 in Kolaras,” the memorandum said.
