Bhadoi: A case was lodged on Monday against former BJP president Nitin Gadkari, party candidate for Bhadoi Lok Sabha seat Virendra Singh and a dozen other leaders for alleged violation of the model code of conduct.
"A case has been lodged against Gadkari, Singh and dozen other BJP leaders for violation of the model code of conduct at Suryawan Police Station," Deputy Returning Officer Uma Kant Tripathi said.
