The Election Commission has registered an FIR against BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra for violating the model code of conduct in Madhya Pradesh.

The Congress had moved the EC against Mr Patra for holding a roadside press conference and blocking the road on October 27. EC officials said the BJP leader not only addressed the media by the side of a road but also violated the time slot given to him. Though the organisers had sought a slot between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. that day, Mr. Patra addressed the media between 12 noon and 12.30 p.m. in violation of EC rules.
