  November 12, 2022 By: INSEC

As the upcoming elections of the House of Representatives and the Provincial Assembly are approaching, the candidates have intensified their promotions and campaigning incidents of violation of the election code of conduct have started happening in the district.

Industrialist and election candidate Binod Kumar Chaudhary, the candidate from the alliance in the District Assembly, Constituency No. 1, has been found to be running feasts at Trinetra Adhyatma Dham in Bardaghat Municipality-7, Jimirebhar for a week.

Chaudhary used children against the code of conduct in election campaigning and was found luring the voters by providing free CG internet service. Since the southern area of the district is the centre of banana production, they have set the foundation of the food industry (CG) snacks produced from bananas and lured the general voters with their economic power.

A complaint has been lodged at the district election office against the incident and investigation is being conducted against the complaint.
