Leader of opposition in Haryana Vidhan Sabha and Congress candidate for Rohtak parliamentary constituency Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Saturday complained to the Election Commission against alleged use of money power by BJP candidate Abhimanyu to "influence the voters" of Rohtak.

Hooda's election agent Chander Sen submitted the complaint to the election observer for the Rohtak Lok Sabha seat here and sent copies to the EC and the Returning Officer.

Full page and half page advertisements in the form of "news items" had appeared in some Hindi dailies on Friday, the complaint pointed out, adding the newspapers did not specify as to who was the sponsor of the advertisements.

These newspapers were being distributed free of cost, the complaint said, adding the advertisements were in clear violation of the model code of conduct for polls.

Hood urged the election observer to take note of it and immediately stop these malpractices.
