Congress complains to EC over BJP 'bribe' to voters

The Congress party has lodged a complaint with the Election Commission of India against BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa on the grounds that he was found distributing money in the Gundlupet constituency.

A group of Congressmen led by N S Boseraju on Saturday submitted the complaint to the EC through the office of the chief electoral officer. The Congress has said that Yeddyurappa, the BJP state president, had ‘paid’ Rs 1 lakh to women at Vaddana Hosahalli, Hangala hobli, Gundlupet Assembly constituency. This amounts to bribing voters. The incident has been telecast by channels, they claimed. There is also a complaint against former minister Renukacharya. The Congress said that Renukacharya, with his party workers, was carrying Rs 5 lakh for distribution to voters in Gundlupet. The petitioners wanted the EC to take action against both the BJP leaders.
