MLA's plea to EC to cancel poll code of conduct in Cities

C T Ravi

MLA C T Ravi urged the State Election Commission to cancel the election code of conduct in City limits to facilitate the implementation of development works.

Addressing a press conference here on Friday, Ravi said that development works in the City will be stalled if the code of conduct was in force. Hence, the Commission should take a decision to avoid Cities from the purview of code of conduct, he added.

Ravi, who is the State General Secretary of BJP, said that the list of candidates for the Zilla Panchayat and Taluk Panchayat elections in the district will be released on December 13. “The party has been geared up completely to face the election. Party workers meet was organised at nearly 700 places across the State. Block-level conventions were held at 80 Legislative Assembly constituencies in the State.

Election Working Committees were formed in all districts, taluks and in the State. A manifesto committee has been formed, he said adding that In-charges have also been appointed for all ZP constituencies, he said. The separate manifestos will be released for the State and districts within a week. Audio and video technology will be used to spread the manifesto, he added.

20 ZPs for BJP

Ravi asserted that the party will bag majority in more than 20 ZPs and more than 100 TPs. “The Congress and the JD(S), which lost power in the State, have become sick,” he ridiculed and added that the BJP will prove its majority in rural areas too in the election.
People belong to all community will be taken into confidence and equal representation will be given all sections of the society, Ravi said.

To a query on land scams in the State, Ravi agreed that it would have impact on the election results. “Party will bring to light the scams that took place in the State in the last 60 years. In addition, we will convince voters about the development works taken up within two-and-a-half years during BJP rule and win people’s confidence,” he added.
