GUWAHATI: The Election Commission revised the model code of conduct for political parties retraining them from realising party manifesto 48 hours prior to conclusion of poll for every phase of the election.

In a letter the poll panel informed the heads of all national and state parties that it was adding a new para to the model code of conduct with two sub-paras. 

Under Section 126 of the Representation of the People Act, the 1st para prohibits manifesto being released during the prohibitory period in a single phase poll and sub-para 2 prohibits manifestos from being released during 48 hours in all phase election.
