The Election Commission directed the Varanasi Returning Officer to file an FIR or complaint against Congress candidate Ajai Rai on Monday for displaying his party symbol, which is barred on voting day. The FIR was filed under sections 126 and 130 of Representation of Peoples Act against Rai. Earlier in the morning, Rai had worn the party symbol while casting his vote at a booth in Ramnagar. Rai however, defended his action saying that he has the right to wear the symbol as a candidate.
