Poll code: Artiste's suspension revoked

The Moodbidri election officer has revoked suspension of an artiste of Kateel Yakshagana troupe, reports DHNS from Moodbidri (DK district).

Election officer V Prasanna had issued a written order recommending the suspension the artiste - Poorneshwara Acharya, for allegedly making a politically motivated statement with an indirect reference to Congress president Rahul Gandhi, in a Yakshagana. The act attracted action for breach of the model code of conduct. It is said the controversial dialogue was delivered by the artiste during a different yakshagana staged at Kasargod, Kerala in March. After realising the mistake, the election officer withdrew his order.
