The Congress leader said that TI (Town Inspector) Dharmendra Yadav is a relative of the BJP candidate. Congress has demanded the Election Commission to shift the TI.

Dhanopia said that there are several sub inspectors who have been stationed there for more than three years – which is against the rule prescribed in model code. They should have been removed by now but the BJP government is trying to throw all norms to winds and trying all means to influence voters and elections.
