The SAD filed a complaint with the EC Thursday against Raveen Thukral, claiming that he, as Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh's media advisor, had been posting official press releases of the Congress on social media.
However, Thukral denied the Shiromani Akali Dal's charge and said he had resigned from his post on April 7 and the same had been accepted.
He further said he was handling election campaign of the chief minister in his personal capacity.
In a complaint filed with the Election Commission, Charanjit Singh Brar, political secretary to SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal, claimed that Thukral had violated the model code of conduct by posting Congress party's official press releases on social media.
The SAD has simultaneously complained against Bathinda district public relation officer and Mansa assistant public relation officer, while claiming that they were allegedly influencing voters in favour of the Congress.
