A Congress delegation lead by Union Law Minister, Kapil Sibal met the election body on Monday and complained about the violation of model code of conduct in Faizabad, Azamgarh and Amethi constituency of Uttar Pradesh.

"We have met the election commission and complained about what has happened in the very recent past. Especially in Faizabad, Azamgarh and Amethi. In Amethi there is this use of scandalous pamphlets and the source of these scandalous pamphlets is obvious. Thousands of such scandalous pamphlets against Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi has been distributed", said Sibal.

Meanwhile, ahead of the last two phases of polling, a BJP delegation led by senior leader, Arun Jaitley met the Commission to complain about booth capturing in the ongoing general election. "A delegation of Bharatiya Janata Party met Election Commission and we have said very clearly to the election commission that in last 15 years there was a positive achievement of the commission to stop booth capturing but in 2014 election this booth capturing thing and especially silent booth capturing thing has again started", said Jaitley.

With the last two phases left for the mammoth general election to conclude, the leaders have indulged in political drama in the last leg of campaign. Tall claims, allegations, hate speeches are making rounds in the political fraternity
