The Gujarat high court on Monday stayed the summons issued against state home minister Pradipsinh Jadeja by a magistrate court on a private complaint filed by an election official alleging that he flouted the model code of conduct during the 2007 Assembly poll campaign. 

The court of Justice S H Vora stayed issuance of process under sections 127-A(1) and 128(2)(b) of the Representation of People Act until the final outcome of his plea in a lower curt seeking quashing of the complaint against him. The private complaint was filed by the then election officer in 2007 after then Congress president Prakash Shah raised the issue with the election commission.
