Bhubaneswar, Jan 28: A delegation of BJD today met the State Election Commission (SEC) and handed a memorandum demanding action against BJP MLA Bishnu Charan Sethi and BJP workers for violating Model Code of Conduct (MCC) guidelines during Panchayat Polls-2022 in Dhamnagar.

The ruling party alleged that more than a hundred BJP workers and party men were present in Karada Panchayat of Dhamnagar on Wednesday which is a violation of MCC.

“ Sethi made people present in that programme to swear and take oath on religious references to vote for the BJP candidates. This using of religion to ensure voting is a gross and blatant violation of the Model Code of Conduct,” alleged a BJD leader.

The delegation also presented a video clip of the incident for necessary action.
