Kokrajhar: BPF president Hagrama Mohilary on Tuesday said that the party would lodge complaint to State Election Commissioner against UPPL president Promod Boro for violating the norms by having votership in two different constituencies.
Talking to mediapersons in Kokrajhar on Tuesday, BPF president Hagrama Mohilary said that UPPL president Promod Boro had electoral roles in two different constituencies, one at 58-Tamulpur under Kokrajhar HPC in BTC, casting vote at Chouraguri LP School, and another in Rangia under Mangaldai HPC, casting vote at 57 No. Murara Ballika LP School in Kamrup district of Assam. He said it was unfortunate on the part of the UPPL supremo to violate the norms of the Election Commission. He also said a person could not have two constituencies as per guidelines of the EC and Promod Boro being the party president and candidate of UPPL, could not violate the law.
Mohilary said the BPF would move the State Election Commission on Wednesday to lodge complaint against Promod Boro. He said Boro did not cancel one of his constituencies before submission of nomination papers for BTC election. He is contesting from Goibari and Kokilabari constituencies of BTC. He demanded the State Election Commission to take punitive measures against Boro as per the law of the land for violating rules.
Meanwhile, Mohilary said the people of BTC had been obeying the countrywide lockdown. He called upon all to remain indoors and maintain social distance.
