Udhampur, Nov 28: Chief patron of Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) Bhim Singh on Friday questioned the credibility of the Election Commission of India (ECI) to hold free and fair election in the state, alleging that the model code of conduct was violated during Prime Minister's rally here ahead of the December 2 election.
Singh, who was addressing a massive rally in Landar, Panchari, in Udhampur district, said hundreds of government vehicles deployed for the PM's rally flouted the election norms by carrying BJP's flags and voters for the rally. He accused the observers and administration of facilitating Modi's rallies in the state.
Singh alleged that around 10 days ago, the district returning officer of Jammu impounded a vehicle of the JKNPP which was parked outside the party headquarters despite its having permission of the chief electoral officer. Singh sought an explanation of such dual standards from the ECI.
