Election manifestoes cannot be brought under model code of conduct: SP

After the Supreme Court asked the Election Commission to frame guidelines to restrain political parties from promising freebies to voters in their election manifestoes, Samajwadi party leader Ram Gopal Yadav on Saturday said that election manifestoes made by political parties cannot be brought under any model code of conduct. Yadav also said that such infringement by the Election Commission and the Supreme Court is not practical and parties make promises according to their ideologies. He further said that any work is done by the party or a minister based on his promises to the people.
