Maha Congress files complaint against Mahayuti for ‘using’ public buses for poll campaign

Mumbai, Apr 18 (UNI) The Maharashtra Congress on Thursday filed a complaint against the ruling Mahayuti ally Shiv Sena for allegedly violating the model code of conduct by using State Transport buses for poll campaign.
Congress chief spokesperson Atul Londhe has written to the Maharashtra Chief Electoral officer (CEO) pointing out unauthorised use of nearly 1,000 Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC)’s ST buses for displaying publicity material of the ruling Mahayuti alliance.
“The banners have a huge picture of PM Narendra Modi along with the Bow and Arrow symbol of the Shiv Sena and photos of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, Deputy CMs Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar. As per the Election Commission of India’s letter no 437/6/INST/2015-CCS dated December 29, 2015, the use of government and PSUs properties is banned for electoral campaigning. Despite this ban, the ST officials have allowed the illegal use of over 1,000 buses for the election campaign of Shiv Sena candidates,” said Londhe in the letter.
