Goa: Stop all political patronage at ‘Tika Utsav’ venue, said election commission

In what can be seen as a setback to BJP, the state election commission has said that permission has been granted to undertake the Covid-19 vaccination drive ‘Tika Utsav’ during the code of conduct for municipal polls provided there is no political patronage at the vaccination venue and there should be no advertisement by any political party or leader to influence voters.
