Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Leader of opposition Dr Govind Singh on Thursday filed a complaint with the Election Commission of India (ECI) against Bhind Collector Sanjeev Shrivastava for allegedly supporting BJP candidates in the assembly elections.

Singh claimed that if the Collector remained on his seat, the election results may get affected.

The Congress leaders are attacking the government employees who allegedly supported BJP candidates and filing complaints against them.

The LoP, while addressing media persons said that the Collector had asked his employees about the Lahar constituency, from where he is registering win for seven times in a row. The Collector had asked for a confidential report from the employees, he alleged.

He claimed that several government employees were barred from casting their votes and whoever casted votes, their box was not deposited in the treasury.

Singh also alleged that the Congress party polling agents were forced to sit outside the polling stations, but on the other hand, the BJP agents were sitting inside and manipulating the elections.
