Citing some news reports, Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) General Secretary Ranjan Bora said the PMO has violated the model code of conduct by announcing that Bogibeel bridge over Brahmaputra river will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 25 this year.
"Some of the news channels in Assam telecast around 11 a.m today (Wednesday) that the PMO has announced inauguration of the Bogibeel bridge by the Prime Minister. This is a violation when polling in the first phase of panchayat polls was going on in the state," said Ranjan Bora.
This kind of announcement will certainly influence a section of voters as the Bogibeel bridge is an emotional issue in Assam, he said.
"We hope that your office will take necessary action against the PMO," he said in his complaint to the CEO, Assam.
