Nagpur: Pramod Manmode, the independent candidate contesting the State Assembly elections from Nagpur South constituency, has been found violating the Code of Conduct on voting day. Manmode has been found “canvassing” within 100 metres of a polling station by putting up a banner at a booth.
The banner with name of Pramod Manmode and his election symbol Kapbashi (Cup and Soccer) has been put at a booth near Polling Station in Kukde Layout locality falling under Nagpur South constituency. The act is clear violation of Code of Conduct which bars candidates from indulging in any sort of canvassing 48 hours before the date of polling.
