Row over tur dal packets with CM's pics

The public and representatives of various parties have opposed the distribution of tur dal packets having the picture of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah at fair price shops in the taluk.

As soon as the news spread, deputy director for food and civil Supplies Manteswamy, who is also the election officer, inspected the shops in the town, the ration shops and the TAPCMS godowns. The packets were distributed after pasting black stickers on Siddaramaiah's picture.

BJP leader Yadathore Mahesh said it was a clear case of poll code violation. The fair price shop owners said the officers had not given them any instruction, asking them not to distribute the packets with the chief minister's picture.
