December 24, 2004 18:37 IST

More than 30 FIRs have so far been registered with different police stations in Patna, Muzaffarpur and Vaishali districts in Bihar for violation of the model code of conduct for assembly elections, official sources said on Friday.

The FIRs have been lodged in connection with banners, hoardings and posters put up by the Rashtriya Janata Dal and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) for their political rallies.

While the LJP staged a massive rally in Patna on November 27, its propaganda material, including posters, banners and flags, were still seen on government and private buildings even after the code of conduct came into effect on December 17.
