Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh tonight denied the allegation of misuse of official machinery for tomorrow's rally of Congress President Sonia Gandhi here.

Speaking to reporters after inspecting the venue and arrangement of rally at local Dana Mandi on Hoshiarpur Road, Singh said since Sonia Gandhi was having Z-plus security, it was the duty of the state government to co-operate with the Special Protection Group for ensuring foolproof security.

"We have don it for PM and Deputy PM," he said.

So why Akalis are making a fuss when the state government is doing so for the security of Sonia Gandhi?, he asked.

He said Congress had never violated the model code of conduct in any election during the last 55 years and nor it was doing so now.

"My road show a couple of days back at Jalandhar and Kapurthala was not violation of the election code of conduct," he said.
