Cong accuses Raje of violating poll code

Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot accused Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje of violating the model code of conduct.

Citing the Election Commission’s norms, Pilot said once the campaigning is over, no one, except voters of the constituency, can stay beyond 6 pm, but  Vasundhara and her two ministers stayed back in Dholpur, where the polling is scheduled on Sunday.

Pilot accused the chief minister of influencing the voters by her presence in Dholpur on the eve of the polling day.

Pilot tweeted, “State government is flouting all norms. Administration, officials succumbing to pressure & allowing this, undermines the sanctity of the EC. Intimidation & luring of votes being done with impunity.” The BJP, however, backed the chief minister, saying that she stayed back in Dholpur for medical reasons.
