BHOPAL : Congress has complained with the Election Commission of India for violation of model code of conduct by holding a programme in Jhabua on Tuesday, said in-charge of election cell of Congress, JP Dhanopia. A programme was organized in Jhabua on Tuesday where chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and other ministers were present. CM Chouhan made several announcements that could affect the voters and amount to allurement of voters, said Dhanopia. Congress leader, Dhanopia said that Jhabua shares its boundary with Jobat assembly. “Over 25 panchayats having 35 polling booths are located in Jhabua district. Moreover, earlier Jhabua and Alirajpur were one districts,” he added.
