Jamshedpur: The Congress has violated the
model code of conducted during the election campaign of party
president Sonia Gandhi at Ghatsila, Jharkhand BJP president
Raghuvar Das alleged on Thursday.

Das, who visited Ghatsila yesterday, told newsmen here
that hundreds of flags and cutouts of senior Congress leaders
had been put up for Gandhi`s poll meeting in violation of the
code.

Besides, the party had been distributing saris to lure
poor voters to vote for its candidate and Jharkhand PCC
president Pradeep Kumar Balmuchu, who is seeking re-election
for the fourth time from the seat.

Das said he would take up the issue with the Election
Commission soon.

``The Congress, RJD and JMM are desperate to win the
election by any means and are spending huge money that was
looted during the 23-month rule by Madhu Koda`s UPA
government,`` he alleged.

Referring the Rs 4000 crores money laundering scam
involving Koda, he said these parties were now trying to save
their skins and appealed to Prime Minister to order for probe
against the leaders whose names were found in the former Chief
Minister`s diary.
