Bhubaneswar: The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) today moved the Election Commission and reported a formal complaint on the 'forged' intelligence report on the Chief Minister's candidature, which is making rounds since Monday.

Apprising the Chief Electoral Officer about the issue, BJD leaders alleged that the BJP has utilised an incredible social media document for 'petty electoral gains'.

"We strongly object to the circulation of the forged report. If the CEO does not act on the perpetrators treating the circulation of the fake report as an exception, it will soon turn into a practice," BJD Spokesperson, Sasmit Patra said.

Patra added, the BJD will keenly wait and watch for 48 hours to see action against the persons involved in this case. "If the Election Commission fails to act, sourcing unreliable documents from social media and using those in poll campaing will become a trend."
