Congress leaders write to ECI over ‘irregularities’

Chandigarh, January 9

Chandigarh Congress president Pardeep Chhabra and MC councillors Devinder Singh Babla, Gurbax Rawat, Sheela Phool Singh and Satish Kainth wrote to the Election Commission of India regarding the alleged irregularities and flouting of norms during the Chandigarh MC mayoral poll.

The Congress leaders said smartphones with cameras were carried into the assembly hall by the councillors. Even the secrecy of the ballot was not maintained as the voting ballot area was not concealed properly as per the norms and rules, they alleged.

"All this happened due to the political pressure by the ruling party and alleged connivance of officials with the powers that be. It all started when the nomination of one of the mayoral candidates was rejected arbitrarily on flimsy grounds by the officials concerned," they said. — TNS
