Referring to a viral video, the APCC complaint said that Talukdar who has recently left All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) and later joined BJP has been indulging in corrupt practices.

“It has come to the notice of Assam Pradesh Congress Committee through media reports and video clippings that the BJP candidate of Bhawanipur Constituency, Sri Phani Talukdar is indulging in bribery and corrupt practices by distributing money to voters outside his residence in Bhawanipur” the letter stated.

“This brazen act by the candidate is a gross violation of the provisions of Section 123 (1) of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 as well as the Election Commission of India’s Model Code of Conduct,” further it was mentioned.
