Jamshedpur, Nov 20: Congress candidate from Jamshedpur West Banna Gupta has written to East Singhbhum Deputy Commissioner-cum-District Returning Officer Ravi Shankar Shukla demanding quashing of action taken against him under Section 127A of The Representation of the People Act, 1951. He said the charges leveled against him in the notice given to him by the district administration are incorrect ad he had not distributed pamphlets after the imposition of the Model Code of Conduct on 11th November last.
