Kanpur: Troubles for Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi and Union Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal in a model code of conduct violation case show no sign of abating. The Congress leaders have been embroiled in the case for continuing their road show beyond prescribed time on February 20 in Kanpur.

The case will be taken up for hearing on March 3 in the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Court. The Chakeri Police on Thursday had requested for some more time to present the investigation report in the court. The police team was supposed to file the report on Thursday.

In his petition, the petitioner Shakeel Ahmed has accused the Congress leaders of violating the model code of conduct during their road show. The show had caused a chaotic situation when it came across a Shiv Barat Procession on the same way on Mahashivratri Day. People in the Shiv Barat Procession found it disturbing and annoying on seeing the procession of Congress leaders.

The petitioner had appealed in the court that a case should be filed against Rahul Gandhi, Sriprakash Jaiswal and others who were the part of the road show. CMM Piyush Pandeya has asked the Chakeri Police to submit an investigation report in this regard, but the police failed to submit its report on time.
Actually the report was to be presented before the CMM on Thursday but the local police failed to meet the deadline.
