Alleging biased attitude, independent candidate Simarjit Singh Bains on Saturday complained to election commission against MC commissioner Shruti Singh.
In his complaint, Bains alleged that his posters are not being allowed despite taking permission while SAD candidate Manpreet Singh Ayali is being allowed to put posters at every place.
Bains in his complaint said, “We have to get permission to affix of our flex and pay the prescribed fee but our applications for permissions are not attended and every hindrance is created with the intention to reject them or take unnecessary time with a view to delay the permission. Whereas the candidate of the ruling party Manpreet Singh Ayali is given all favour and he dictates MC officials.”
Till now, the Municipal Corporation has removed more than 3,000 posters of which 1,800 are of Ayali and 1,500 of Bains.
When contacted, Shruti Singh said, “I have no involvement in getting posters removed as four teams in each zone are working under EC throughout the district to remove posters.”
