“We met the CEC in connection with the violation of the Model Code of Conduct by BJD in the Odisha bypolls. BJD makes administrative officers act like its party workers. In a video, a woman officer was distributing money, saying those who came to our programme would be given money. In the second incident, a government official says that the panchayat which will win would be given Rs 1 crore,” BJP’s Sambit Patra told reporters at Nirvachan Sadan on Wednesday.
A BJP delegation had also moved the poll panel on October 14 against the BJD and TRS. It had alleged that in the case of Odisha, the state government “illegally transported” two government officials to Bhadrak district.
