In a written complaint to chief election commissioner and chief electoral officer of MP, BJP leaders including ministers Umashankar Gupta, Vishwas Sarang, state vice-president and MLA Rameshwar Sharma and convener of election related affairs, Shantilal Lodha demanded that the order of Election Commission which directs the political leaders to seek EC’s permission to participate in Navratri festival events be withdrawn immediately.
