Akalis accuse Warring of trying to bribe voters
The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today appealed to the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) to lodge an FIR against Bathinda Congress candidate Amrinder Singh Raja Warring for “trying to forcibly bribe voters”. The party wants his immediate arrest and cancellation of his nomination.
A SAD delegation, led by party senior vice president Dr Daljit Singh Cheema, submitted a formal representation to the Chief Electoral Officer, Punjab, Dr S Karuna Raju, in this regard along with video as evidence. They alleged that Warring had not only violated the model code of conduct, but also indulged in corrupt practices under Section 123 of the Representation of People’s Act, 1950, and Representation of People’s Act, 1951. It said in light of this fact, he should be arrested immediately after registration of a case against him.
