SAD complains against Capt’s media adviser


The SAD on Thursday submitted a complaint with the Punjab chief election commissioner (CEC) against the chief minister’s media adviser Raveen Thukral, for violation of the model code of conduct by posting official Congress party press releases on social media.

SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal’s political secretary Charanjit Singh Brar submitted the complaint, saying since Thukral was a government servant, he could not disseminate political news and press releases on his Facebook page as was being done by him.

Brar submitted that since it was a grave violation of the code, appropriate action should be initiated against Thukral for indulging in serious misconduct.

He said Thukral was also indulging in political activities and even monitoring the distribution of press releases of the Congress. “Action, including relieving him of his post, should be taken against Thukral for wilfully and deliberately violating the model code of conduct,” submitted Brar.

However, Thukral denied the SAD charge, saying that he had resigned from his post on April 7 and the same had been accepted. He added that he was handling Amarinder’s election campaign in his personal capacity.

The SAD has also submitted a complaint against Bathinda district public relations officer Gurdeep Mann and Mansa assistant public relations officer Megha Mann for poll code violation by exercising influence on voters in favour of the Congress.
