NSD Logo
BJP today approached Election Commission against Congress President Rahul Gandhi accusing him of using paid news to influence the voters in Telangana and Rajasthan assembly polls.

A party delegation comprising senior BJP leaders J P Nadda and Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi met the Commission in New Delhi and demanded action against Mr. Gandhi. 

Talking to reporters, Mr. Naqvi said,  48 hours before the close of poll, the Congress chief had given an interview to a Hyderabad based newspaper and claimed his party's victories in Telangana and other states citing some poll surveys. 

He alleged that this was a violation of poll norms as Mr. Gandhi tried to  influence the free and fair polls. Mr. Naqvi  said the BJP has also  lodged a complaint about booth capturing in some areas in Rajasthan and demanded re-polling there.
