Raj: Congress complains against BJP
Jaipur, Nov 30: Accusing BJP's chief ministerial candidate Vasundhara Raje of continuing to campaign on social media even after deadline in violation of model code of conduct, Congress on Saturday filed a complaint with the election commission seeking cancellation of her candidature.

Raje's campaigning continued on her official Facebook page even after deadline for electioneering 5 pm on Friday, Nov 29, Congress said in the complaint filed by spokesperson Satyendra Singh Raghav.

"She has posted one photograph and one album of Jhalrapatan and Khanpur (on Facebook) urging voters to vote in favour of BJP. This is clear violation of code of conduct," the complaint alleged, while demanding action against Raje.

Electioneering for December 1 polls in Rajasthan ended at 5 pm on Friday. Voting in 199 out of 200 assembly constituencies in the state will take place on Sunday while Churu, where the BSP candidate had died, will go on polls on December 13.
