Though Daltongunj Deputy Commisioner cum District Election Officer K N Jha had made it clear yesterday that the BJP candidate was arrested after he took out a motorcycle rally in Medininagar without prior permission,BJP leaders alleged that Congress had been misusing the state machinery for getting electoral gain in the Assembly poll on December 25.f
“The arrest of our party candidate makes it clear that the administration was being used by the Congress to benifit its candidate”,said BJP Vice-President Raghubir Das told reporters here.
