The police here today registered a complaint under relevant sections of IPC against Congress candidate from Vadodara Lok Sabha constituency Madhusudan Mistry for publishing an allegedly defamatory pamphlet against Narendra Modi, his rival and BJP's prime ministerial candidate.
Police inspector Munaf Pathan of Manjalpur police station registered the complaint.
The pamphlet accuses Modi in the context of corruption and also refers to the snooping scandal involving a young woman architect.
Mistry, however, denied the pamphlet broke any law and claimed it had been vetted by the Election Commission fifteen days ago.
He demanded transfer of the District Collector and the city Police Commissioner for their "partisan" attitude.
