A day after the Bharuch district election officials found a few persons surreptiously distributing CDs containing details of temple demolitions in Gandhinagar to the electorate,the matter was referred to the Jambusar police officials on Tuesday.
According to the district election officials,some unidentified people had been found distributing CDs on the recent temple demotions.
Sources in the Congress and the BJP alleged that the CDs were being distributed by the Mahagujarat Janta Party (MJP).
However,Bharuchs MJP candidate Naresh Patel was quick to deny the charges. Bharuch MLA Dushyant Patel,however,said,We have information that the MJP distributed the CDs,but we do not have any concrete proof yet.
Jambusar Police Sub Inspector N G Vaghela said,District officials have asked us to carry out an inquiry. Nothing can be said as of now,as we are still investigating the matter. There has to be proper evidence.
Resident District Collector of Bharuch B G Prajapati said,We have initiated an inquiry. We believe that there may be a bigger nexus in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar constituencies.
Meanwhile,S M Khopkar,the officer investigating the incident,said,The CD is of 22 minutes. We will submit the report tomorrow.
