Election Commission has received more than 500 complaints, including 31 from political parties, till date. Out of total 31 complaints made by political parties, 20 have been made by the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP). Overall 571 complaints were received by election commission till Tuesday. Common people have lodged 127 complaints related with violation of Model Code of Conduct. BJP tops the list in complaints made by political parties that has made 20 complaints.
Sources said that election commission has received overall 571 complaints out of which 158 complaints have been found serious in nature. Out of these 158 complaints 136 have been forwarded to departments concerned for action while inquiry report has been sought on 22 complaints.
Election commission has also received inquiry reports on two complaints from the government. Though the statistics seems attractive but sources said that most of the serious complaints against senior leaders of the ruling party have not been addressed so far. The BJP had complained against the chief minister and the state government after it had started sending SMSes to farmers that their loans could not be waived of because of implementation of Model Code of Conduct and that the process of waiving off of loans will resume after elections.
Another complaint was made against senior Congress leader and sitting MP Jyotiraditya Scindia. He had announced Rs 10 lakh from his MPLAD fund for the villages who will lead in voting for the Congress party. Several complaints were made by common people as well on transfers made in back date by the state government after announcement of poll dates.
