Morena (Madhya Pradesh): In a brazen violation of the Model Code of Conduct, supporters of the BJP candidate Shiv Mangal Singh Tomar in the Lok Sabha elections have been found displaying hoardings and banners across the city of Morena on Sunday. These hoardings were strategically placed at various locations on the occasion of 133rd birth anniversary of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, catching the attention of authorities.

Upon receiving reports of the unauthorized hoardings, municipal officials swiftly took action, deploying tractor trailers to remove all the banners and hoardings placed in public spaces by the supporters.

It is important to note that during the election period, the Model Code of Conduct strictly prohibits candidates from using hoardings and banners for promotional activities. However, despite these guidelines, Shiv Mangal Singh Tomar's supporters took matters into their own hands, defying the rules and displaying a blatant disregard for the code.
