Friday, 15 March 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

In perhaps the first action for violation of Model Code of Conduct in Uttar Pradesh after the announcement of 2019 Lok Sabha poll schedule, the Pratapgarh administration registered a case against Bahujan Samaj Party leaders on Thursday.

The BSP leaders and  workers were holding an election meeting without taking permission from the district administration.

“In-charge of BSP for Pratapgarh Lok Sabha constituency is among the 68 people booked for violating the Model Code of Conduct,” said a senior officer of Pratapgarh police on Thursday afternoon.

He said that sector magistrate Pradip Kumar reached Verma Nagar crossing on Thursday noon where a poll meeting was underway without any permission.

“When asked, the organisers failed to produce any document to establish that they had permission for the meeting,“ the official revealed. 

A case was registered against BSP leader and Lok Sabha constituency in-charge Ashok Tripathi, divisional party chief Ajay Pasi, Kamlesh Verma and 65 unidentified persons at Lalganj Kotwali on Wednesday evening. Further action would be taken as per guidelines of the Election Commission of India.
