Police inspector shifted as Cong accuses BJD of ‘buying’ votes


OST Bureau

Bhubaneswar, Jan 7:

Congress submitted a written complaint to Chief election commissioner regarding 'buying votes'

The Congress today formally lodged a complaint with the State Election Commission (SEC) against the ruling Biju Janata Dal for ‘distributing cash’  ahead of the BMC polls ‘to buy votes’ in a number of wards and demanded action against the party.

A delegation of the Congress led by Sibananda Ray and Bijayalaxmi Sahu met with the state election commissioner AK Tripathy and submitted a written complaint in this regard to him.


Sources in the Congress said the party had evidence of money being distributed in the slums in Ward 40 ( Shanti Nagar, Jharpada Village Area, Laxmisagar BRIT Stage I, II & III) and had informed this to the SEC.

Reliable sources said the inspector in charge of the Laxmisagar Police Station had been transferred following the complaint .

It is believed that the transfer of the police official was ordered by the SEC after preliminary verification of the allegation of money distribution in certain slums in the city.
