GUWAHATI: The State BJP's legal cell has moved the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO), Assam with a complaint against Congress candidate for 84-Batadrawa LAC (Legislative Assembly Constituency) Sibamoni Bora.
According to the complaint sent by the Legal Election Management Committee of the State BJP, "while addressing a public meeting the Congress candidate has publicly admitted of enrolling ineligible persons in the voter lists of 84-Batadrawa LAC using her official capacity as BDO without verifying and examining the documents despite knowing that these persons are not eligible to be enrolled as voters. The illegality came to light in a video uploaded by her in her facebook account. A local news channel also telecast the news which also supported the fact of her illegality. By the said statement made in a public meeting Sibamoni Bora tried to induce voters to cast their votes in her favour for the illegal act done by her, which amounts to corrupt practice also."
The party sought legal action against Bora under the penal laws for Commission of offence against the State and also to take a stern action against Bora cancelling her candidature and direct her not to address any public meeting till the end of the election process.
