Assam Panchayat Polls: Show cause notices to AIUDF candidates

Assam Panchayat Polls- Hailakandi Administration served show cause notices to AIUDF candidates for MCC violation.


The Hailakandi district administration has viewed very seriously violation of model code of conduct (MCC) by some candidates during their election campaign meetings in the district.

Returning Officer, Adil Khan has issued show cause notices to two candidates of the AIUDF for violation of MCC in their campaign meetings on November 28.

AIUDF Zila Parishad candidate of Rangauti-Nitainagar constituency, Farhana Khanam Choudhury used loudspeakers in her election campaign meeting much beyond the permissible time limit of 8 pm forcing the magistrate and police to intervene and stop her meeting. The MCC clearly stipulates that microphone/loudspeakers cannot be used between 8 pm to 8 am.

In yet another case of violation of MCC, AIUDF Zila Parishad candidate of Bhatirkupa-Boalipar constituency, Jahurul Islam Mazumder used loudspeakers beyond the permissible time limit prompting the administration to stop the meeting forthwith.

Returning Officer, Khan while serving show cause to both candidates, asked them to reply as to why action should not be initiated against them for flagrant violation of MCC, including cancellation of their candidature.
