A revenue official in Gurdaspur has been suspended for allegedly violating the model code of conduct by campaigning for an SAD candidate, a senior official said on Friday.

Davinder Singh was suspended by Gurdaspur’s district collector cum district electoral officer, Pardeep Aggarwal, for allegedly campaigning for the SAD candidate from Gurdaspur assembly constituency, Gurbachan Singh Babbehali.
