Jamnagar: Election officials have seized a cache of watches, bearing name and photograph of a Congress MLA, meant for distribution during Navratri celebrations in Moti Khawadi village, officials said.

"Around 154 watches bearing name and photograph of Congress MLA Raghavji Patel from Jodia constituency have been seized for violation of model code of conduct (MCC)," YB Srinivasan, an EC official said.

"A detailed report of it will be sent to election commission head office," he said.

The wall clocks were meant for distribution during an event organised as part of the ongoing Navratri festival celebrations, Srinivasan said.
