He alleged that despite model code of conduct in force these hoardings and posters have not been removed at a number of places in the state.

"We demand from the EC that an FIR should be lodged against officers responsible for not removing the hoardings and action should taken against them," he said.

On being asked about statues of Mayawati, he said that even statues of BSP's election symbol were erected at a number of places and the EC should take some decision on this.

"During NDA regime the EC directed to remove signages from highways under the scheme launched by the then government and the party complied with it," he said.
