The opposition Congress
on Saturday alleged that the state-owned power distribution company of BJP-ruled Assam
is on a recruitment drive violating the model code of conduct (MCC).
Lodging a complaint with the Election Commission
in this regard, state Congress general secretary Ranjan Bora
said the Assam
Power Distribution Company Ltd (APDCL) is set to organise a written examination for recruitment on April 28.
The written test is being held to hire people for the post of Office-cum-Field Assistants and Sahayaks, he claimed.
"This is a clear instance of violation of the MCC by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party
in the state of Assam
since the MCC continues to be applicable till the declaration of the results of the Lok Sabha Election on May 23, 2019," he said in the complaint.
Besides, the Congress
alleged that admit cards to appear for the examination have not been sent to a large number of candidates at the behest of the BJP.
