Jamshedpur : Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Wednesday appeared in the city. He was greeted by the authorities at Sonari aerodrome this morning.
Tomorrow he will appear in the court of sub-divisional judicial magistrate (SDJM) in connection with a case of violation of model code of conduct during the 2009- Assembly polls.
Besides the Chief Minister, two others, including a party colleague, Chandrashekhar Mishra, former district BJP president, will also appeared in the court where all the three deposed before the SDJM, G K Tiwari. The court is expected to pronounce its judgment on June 11.
Notably, Das who was a sitting MLA and was contesting for the Jamshedpur East assembly constituency from BJP had fixed party flags on a party office at the premises of a temple in Sitaramdera .
After the unauthorised party office had come to the notice of the administration, the then sub-divisional officer, Dhalbhum, Prabhat Kumar Kartik had lodged an FIR against the trio.
Das was the BJP candidate from the Jamshedpur East constituency and as the Sidhgora area falls under his jurisdiction, the SDO Kartik Prabhat implicated him and the then district president of the party Chandrashekhar in the case.
After appearing before the court, the Chief Minister addressed the media and said that it was his duty to appear before the court as the case was pending pertaining to violation of election code of conduct.
“I honour the court despite my busy schedule in decided to appear before the court,” said Das while replying to the queries by the reporters.
