Sambit Patra Named In Compliant For Violating Poll Code In Madhya Pradesh


BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra has been named in an FIR for poll code violation in Madhya Pradesh, a senior election official said Friday.

On October 27, Mr Patra had held a press conference by the side of a road in MP Nagar in Bhopal, following which the Congress had filed a complaint with the Election Commission.

The organisers of the press conference had sought a slot between 1 pm and 3pm that day but held it between 12 noon and 12:30 pm, which too was a violation, said EC officials.

Earlier, the FIR included the name of BJP functionary SS Uppal. Mr Patra’s name was added following a report from Bhopal’s returning officer, the officials said.
