Dutee Chand Lands Into Another Controversy

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-04-17

Ace sprinter Dutee Chand has once again landed herself in another controversy for allegedly campaigning for BJD Lok Sabha candidate Achyuta Samanta despite being an ambassador of the Election Commission of India (ECI).


Officially the sprinter has violated the model code of conduct by seeking votes for the MP candidate, who is contesting the polls from Kandhamal Constituency, through a post in her Facebook profile.


A police complaint has been lodged against her at the Odisha Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) in this regard.


CEO Surendra Kumar said being an ambassador of the ECI and getting involved in campaigning for poll candidates is completely unhealthy. The matter will be investigated and her social media account will be verified, he added.
