ANI Photo | West Bengal: BJP complains to State Election Commission about violation of Model Code of Conduct

The Bharatiya Janata Party, on Saturday, wrote to the state election commission complaining about the violation of the Model Code of Conduct by the Trinamool Congress ahead of the Panchayat elections in West Bengal.
Talking about the Sorasori Mukhyamantri program, which was initiated by the state government to solve people’s grievances by establishing direct contact between the person and the Chief Minister via telephone, it said, “Sarasori Mukhyamantri 9130791307, which is the landing number for all calls is the same as the one used by the TMC for their program ‘Didi ke bolo’. Despite our giving all evidence, we were only told that the Chief Secretary has confirmed that the said number now belongs to the government. We disputed that and asked for any written communication from the government which has not been furnished yet”.
