Tumakuru: Deputy Commissioner and District Election Officer Patil said that National and State political parties will have to take permission from the returning officers before holding meetings and functions in connection with the Assembly elections and providing food would violate the model code of conduct.

Addressing a video conference meeting with the returning officers and assistant returning officers of all Assembly constituencies in the District on Monday April 3 evening at the Keswan auditorium of the Deputy Commissioner’s Office here, he said that after filing the nomination papers to contest the elections, the candidate can hold a public meeting and function after obtaining permission.

“Prior to the nomination, only recognised National and State political parties can campaign for the party with the permission of the returning officer. But if a programme is done in favour of a candidate, the entire cost will be recorded in the expenditure account of the candidate. It is mandatory to obtain permission to hold meetings, functions and rallies in public and private places,” he said.

The use of loudspeakers is not allowed between 10.00 pm and 6.00 am for election campaigning. Non-voters of the Assembly constituency, who had come for the election campaign after the end of the election campaign period, were told to leave the constituency 48 hours before the end of the election.
