After reading books by Manmohan Singh’s former media adviser Sanjaya Baru and former coal secretary PC Parakh the media are sending him out not with a bang but a whimper. But that...

India in 2014 needs no despot on its Peacock Throne, but a thinker

By Gopalkrishna Gandhi* Gandhi, Ambedkar and Nehru did not say “I am a visionary”; others saw they were that. Patel did not say he was made of iron. Metal does not self-designate. There is a strange stillness in the air. Marine geographers have a word for it – the Doldrums. The word signifies a stupor, in which everyone and everything is listle...

Chandigarh, March 19: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee has demand strict legal action against Mr. Prakash Singh Badal Chief Minister, Mr. Sukhbir Badal Deputy.CM cum President SAD, Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal MP, Mr. Arun Jaitely SAD-BJP candidate from Amritsar and Mr. Bikram Majithia Revenue Minister, for flagrantly violating the Model Code of Conduct.

 PPCC spokesperson Sukhpal Khaira in a complaint to ECI that the above stated powerful politicians are flagrantly, blatantly and willfully defying the Model Code of Conduct, causing impediments for free and fair elections in Punjab.

Mr Prakash Singh  Badal Chief Minister and Mr. Sukhbir Badal Deputy Chief Minister cum President SAD openly defied the ban to hold a political conference on the occasion of ‘Hola-Mohalla’, at Anandpur Sahib on 16th March 2014. The said conference was held on religious premises provided by the SGPC, in the vicinity of Gurudwara Kesgarh Sahib. Mr. Badal who is supposed to lead by example himself, flouted the Model Code of Conduct and accused the ECI of being influenced by the Congress govt. and Congress party. He equated the ECI ban on political conference with the days of “Emergency”, when one could not write or speak freely. Both the CM and the Dy.CM misused religious place for canvassing and influencing the voters in their favour. 

Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal SAD-BJP candidate from Bathinda, is misusing Gurudwara and govt. premises for her publicity. I am forwarding 4 flex board pictures of Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal, displayed in the premises of Gurudwara at V. Ghasokhana and Government Dispensary at V. Kuttiwal Kalan, both in Bathinda district. The said photos are displayed promoting “Nanhi-Chaan” programme of Bibi Harsimrat Kaur Badal, which amounts to influencing voters in her favour. 

Mr. Arun Jaitely SAD-BJP candidate from Amritsar and Mr. Bikram Majithia Revenue Minister blatantly flouted and violated the Model Code of Conduct, by putting up huge flex hoardings all across the city of Amritsar, which include many govt. buildings and public places. Mr. Arun Jaitely, Mr. Majithia and others led a road show at Amritsar yesterday from the Airport to the Golden Temple, leading a massive convoy running into hundreds of vehicles.Therefore, the Congress party seeks strict legal action against the above stated powerful politicians and SAD-BJP candidates, for defying the Model Code of Conduct. In case the ECI fails to take concrete action against the said violators of law, it would be highly impossible to conduct free and fair elections in Punjab.
