The Election Commission has censured ruling Samajwadi Party MLA Gayatri Prasad Prajapati for violating the model code by planning to distribute over four thousand sarees in Amethi during assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh.

Acting on a report submitted by the DM and SP of Fatehpur district, the Commission had issued a show cause notice to Mr Prajapati asking him, why action should not be initiated against him for allegedly planning to influence voters. Not satisfactory with his

reply, the Commission has asked Prajapati to be more careful in his conduct during polls, failing which more stringent actions shall be taken against him.

The report had said that a truck carrying 4,452 sarees was seized during a routine checking on 11th of last month. The documents seized showed Prajapati as the receiver of the consignment. The driver of the vehicle had confessed that the sarees were meant to be distributed during elections in Amethi.
