Wednesday, 7 May 2014 - 12:07pm IST | Place: Amethi | Agency: PTI

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today objected to a lotus sketch on a blackboard in a polling centre in the constituency and said he would draw the attention of the Election Commission towards it.
Gandhi, who for the first time visited his constituency on polling day ever since he has represented the seat since 2004, took a round of booths in the area.

While visiting one such polling station in Phulwa village in Tiloi, the Congress Amethi candidate observed a lotus drawn on the blackboard and said he would complain to the EC against it. However, Tiloi SDM A K Singh said they are yet to receive any complaint on the matter.

The Commission had directed the authorities to cover all the election symbols which could be displayed for various reasons in schools.
