The Congress today approached the Election Commission, alleging that Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis violated the code of conduct during the ongoing campaign for Palghar Lok Sabha by-poll. The chief minister, in his speech at Nala Sopara on May 20, promised to exclude 29 villages from the jurisdiction of Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation, the opposition party alleged.

Such a promise amounted to violation of the poll code, said state Congress general secretary Sachin Sawant. Chandrakant Dube, election agent of Congress candidate Damodar Shingda, filed a complaint against Fadnavis with the returning officer, Sawant said.

The party also submitted a recording of Fadnavis’s speech, he said. The by-election of May 28 was necessitated by the death of BJP MP Chintaman Wanga.
