The Model Code of Conduct has come in the way of Congress’s plan to woo the Marathi voters by selling popular Maharashtrian snack Kaanda Pohe.

Decision on the proposal by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation to set up 125 such stalls in the city was differed in the Law,Revenue and General committee on Tuesday.

The committee has sought the opinion of Election Commissioner on whether such proposals can be approved during the Model Code of Conduct. “Otherwise,we will take the decision after the election process is over,” said chairperson of committee,Ramakant Rahate.

The Code of Conduct which came in place last week prohibits local bodies from taking any new decisions which will influence the voters’ choice before the elections. The proposal for setting of 125 stalls was placed by the civic administration,following demands of Congress group in BMC to counter the ruling Shiv Sena’s Shiv Vada Pav stalls. Congress leader Rajhans Singh had said that BMC should give equal stalls (125) for Kaanda Pohe too.
