“The message mentioned about political neglect of my wife and former mayor Abhilasha Gupta Nandi and urged people to reply through their votes,” Nandi said in the complaint. “Such a message only a day before polls indicates that this was spread under a conspiracy for taking political benefits and an attempt to malign my image,” the minister alleged.

He demanded arrest and strict action against the said Whats App group admin Pramod Babu and the person who posted the message.
