Complaints were lodged with the police against a private school, on charges of violation of model code of conduct for making students watch an interactive video conference session addressed by Union Minister Smriti Irani without the permission from the Returning Officer(RO).

Magistrate R K Singh on Monday said that BJP leader Suraj Pal Sharma had arranged telecast of ‘Udan’, an event addressed by Irani, at Kranti Kapoor Kanya Inter College.

It amounted to violation of the model code since there was no permission taken from the RO for which a non-cognisable report was lodged with the police at Bhojipura police station, he said here.

Taking note of the matter, District Magistrate Pankaj Yadav has sought a report from the RO concerned as well as the district inspector of schools.

The model code bars schools from being used for holding political programmes without permission from authorities.
