Congress candidate from Jhalawar-Baran Lok Sabha seat Pramod Bhaya filed a complaint with the Election Commission against a TV news channel for alleged bias towards his rival and BJP nominee Dushyant Singh, son of Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.
In a written complaint filed on Saturday night, Bhaya alleged that the TV channel during its prime time show first
ran a ticker saying that Singh would win by over a margin of two lakh votes, followed by a ticker saying that Bhaya had
already accepted defeat.
He also claimed the people called for discussion on the show were only talking about the defeat margin.
Bhaya demanded action against the TV news channel and its head for “paid news”, besides registration of a police complaint for defaming him.
Birla said her campaign this time is “very similar” to the last time.
