New Delhi: The Congress Wednesday complained to the Election Commission that BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi had misused official machinery while filing his nomination from Gujarat's Vadodara and sought special central observers be deployed there.


In the complaint to the poll panel, Congress said that its candidate from Vadodra, Madhusudan Mistry, was facing difficulties in running a smooth campaign and his genuine complaints made to authorities "were not being looked into and resolved."

K. C. Mittal, secretary of Congress' legal and human rights department, said that fundamental principles of electoral process and model code of conduct were not being adhered to by Modi, also the Gujarat chief minister.
