Ludhiana, October 21

The Ludhiana rural police issued a notice to MP Ravneet Singh Bittu for going live on Facebook from Boparai Kalan village on Sunday and issuing threats to rivals.

Notably, LIP candidate from Dakha Sukhdev Singh Chak had gone live on Facebook on Sunday, claiming that Congress workers were distributing money to woo voters. Also, LIP workers had cornered a car in which some Congress worker was sitting and tried to manhandle him, but was later set free with a warning. An hour later, Bittu went to the same spot and went live on Facebook and challenged the LIP candidate and leader to reach there if they want to test the patience of the Congress workers.

In another case, the Returning Officer has recommended the DSP to act on a complaint against SAD candidate Manpreet Singh Ayali.

Congress candidate Sandeep Singh Sandhu’s legal counsel Harpreet Sandhu filed a complaint against Ayali for allegedly violating the poll code on Monday morning. Harpreet alleged that Ayali appeared live on Facebook at around 8 am on Monday and appealed to the people to press the button of SAD’s poll symbol on the EVM. It is a violation of the model code of conduct, the counsel alleged. — TNS
