Karnataka: Local court issues summons to CM Yediyurappa for election code of conduct violation

| @indiablooms | 25 Jul 2020, 01:17 pm

Gokak/UNI: A JMFC magistrate here issued summons to Chief minister B S Yediyurappa in relation to a complaint for the alleged violation of election code of conduct, during by-elections to the Gokak Assembly seat held last year.

According to official sources, a complaint was registered against Yediyurappa during the election campaign, under the People Representative Act, for allegedly wooing voters during electioneering.

The Gokak Police, who had investigated the case, however had submitted a 'B' report to the court letting off the Chief minister from the charges.

However the Magistrate, rejecting the Police report, had maintained that there exists prima facie case against the accused and issued summons to appear before the court on Sept 1, the sources added.
