Police officers who were on duty have taken legal action against Shashikala Jolle, a Minister and BJP MLA from Nippani, for allegedly violating the model code of conduct.
Mrs. Jolle was present at an Arisina-Kukuma program that was organized by the Rana Ragini Women’s Association on Municipal Grounds in Nippani on Wednesday. During the event, women from the surrounding area were honored and given gifts, followed by a communal lunch.
The poll officials have filed a case against the Minister and the association under IPC 171 and 171 E, which deal with bribery and undue influence. The incident has raised concerns about the fairness and transparency of the electoral process and highlights the need for strict enforcement of the model code of conduct.
