THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With the code of conduct coming into force in Kerala following announcement of the assembly polls on April 13, the Chief Electoral Officer has banned allocation of funds for developmental work from MPs and MLAs.
Work on projects for which funds had been already sanctioned but are yet to begin should not be started, an official release by the Chief Electoral Officer said.
However, it said work on projects that have already started could continue.
The parties in power, both in state and Centre, should take care that there should not be any complaint about them misusing their official positions, the release said.
The Chief Electoral Officer also issued guidelines to be followed by the political parties while engaging in the election campaign.
