T J ;Abraham files papers in Hassan

RTI activist T J Abraham filed his nomination papers for the Lok Sabha elections from the Hassan seat on Wednesday.

He submitted his papers to district electoral officer V Anbukumar.

Abraham later told reporters that he was contesting to take on Ashok Kheny, who had stated a few months ago that he would fight the polls from the Hassan and Bidar seats.  
He said that Kheny was a US citizen and that the latter had used money power to ensure that his nomination papers for the last Assembly elections were accepted.

Kheny is the MLA from the Bidar seat. Abraham supported Jaffer Sharief’s demand that candidates should not be fielded against former prime minister H D Deva Gowda, who is contesting from Hassan.
