Patna: As many as six Bihar MLAs have
been booked for violation of the provisions of model code of
conduct which had come into effect following announcement of
the assembly polls schedule by the Election Commission on
Monday last, official sources said today.

The newly-appointed JD(S) state unit president Dadan
Singh alias Dadan Pahawan was the latest MLA to be booked by

crackdown against the public representatives for violation of
the
model code of conduct provisions and registered FIRs against
three MLAs - Ramayan Manjhi (BJP), Damodar Singh (JD-U) and
Shyam Bahadur Sing (JD-U) earlier this week, the sources said.
