B S Yediyurappa

The complaint filed by the state Congress says, "The chief minister of the state has held a meeting with the disqualified MLAs in the government guest house, along with his cabinet colleagues and advocate general, after the bye elections for the 15 legislative assembly seats was announced by the EC, which also meant that the election code of conduct came into force immediately after the announcement.

"In addition, the CM, along with other ministers has held a video conference with national president of BJP Amit Shah and working president J P Nadda in the committee room of Vidhana Soudha in which he has discussed about the bye election and the selection of candidates. So suitable legal action should be taken against the CM and the ministers for misusing the administrative power and thereby violating the election code of conduct," the complaint read.

    What is the violation here?? Having a cabinet meeting after announcement election itself does not violate code of conduct. When the outcome the meeting influence the general public which intern impact the voting pattern, then it can be called violation. They have not released any order or sops to the electorate. Make a mountain out of a mole, that it.
