Vadodara: City police today detained Congress candidate against Narendra Modi, Madhusudan Mistry, and other party workers when they tried to paste his posters on his rival's banners at advertisement kiosks in Dandiya Bazaar area here.
“Mistry and other Congress workers have been detained after they tried to paste his posters on a advertisement kiosk installed on electricity poll on road dividers,” Vadodara DCP Dipankar Trivedi said.
Narendra Rawat, the earlier Congress candidate from Vadodara whose candidature was withdrawn after BJP declared that their prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi will fight from this Lok Sabha seat, and Leader of Opposition in Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC)'s Chandrakant Kastur were also detained along with Mistry and other party workers.
“Mistry or any other Congress leader has not taken any permission for the programme,” said Trivedi, adding that further course of action will be decided after looking into the videography of the incident.
“Mistry tried to climb on one pole of road divider for pasting his poster over Narendra Modi's poster, but he was prevented by the police,” a Congress worker said.
“Police also took away his ladder which was used to replace Modi's poster,” he said further.
