Mangalore, Apr 7: DK district congress committee president in-charge Ibrahim Kodijal said that BJP leader Rukmaiah Poojary has made a false statement that the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s rally in Mangalore was low turnout.

Speaking at the press meet held at Congress Election Office on April 7, Monday, he said that he has filed a complaint in this regard with the Election Commission alleging that he had violated the election code of conduct.

He also said that BJP leaders are trying to mislead the people and voters with the false statements, but such kind statements will not benefit the voters or party. However this report was published in few newspapers and this will mislead the voters in the district.

Kodijal said that Rukmaiah Poojary had also shown the photographs of turnout for BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s rally and fewer numbers for Rahul Gandhi’s rally, which is misleading facts.

Congress spokesperson Kallige Taranath Shetty said that BJP leaders indulge themselves in low level publicity by comparison. The turnout was lower since Congress had only 3-4 days of preparation for the rally, while BJP had 15 – 20 days for Modi rally.

Speaking on the campaigners, he said that Former Union minister C M Ibrahim will visit city on Wednesday and will participate in rallies in Mangalore, Suratkal, Ullal and Farangipet, former chief minister S M Krishna and KPCC President Dr G Parameshwar will participate in a rally in Puttur taluk of Dakshina Kannada constituency this Thursday, he added.
