BENGALURU:  The BJP on Tuesday filed a complaint with the State Election Commission against the Congress accusing it of violating the poll code of conduct.

The BJP leaders, led by former minister Sureshkumar, accused Congress of distributing palm oil and salt packets with pictures of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Minister Dinesh Gundurao under public distribution system.

“It is a clear violation of the poll code and Supreme Court directive that barred governments from carrying pictures of ruling party leaders along with its popular schemes,” the petition said.

The leaders also requested the SEC to keep close vigil on Congress activities.
