Following the Lok Sabha Election 2014, political parties have started promotional campaigns and strategizing the upcoming election. Certainly, every party wants its contender to win with large number of votes.
After establishing the Code of Conduct, the parties began to put ‘paid advertisement’ banners across city. These advertisements are allowed by Election Commission with few laws to be followed strictly by the party.
According to the Additional Supervisor for expenditure (Election Commission) Kailash Chandra Choudhary,”Every party can spend upto Rs.70 Lac from each election seat and if the amount exceeded, action will be taken against the party.”
BJP started its banner campaigning from today and set up billboards at different places of the city.
“All expenditures will be counted; it could be a promotional campaign, banner advertisement, public meeting etc. The team of election commission will inspect the expenditure and present a report to the election commission head,” said Choudhary.
Dehat Zila Congress called a meeting for strategizing the election campaign. The meeting was held by Lal Singh Jhala, president of the committee. Dr. Girija Vyas and Raghuveer Singh Meena were also present in the meeting.
Up till now none of the contestants have filed the nomination with election officer. According to political sources, contestants are expected to do so on Monday 24th March.
