Chandrabhan Singh Challenges Election of Kamal Nath

Filing a petition in Jabalpur High Court, former Madhya Pradesh minister Choudhary Chandrabhan Singh has challenged election of Union Minister for Surface Transport Kamal Nath from Chhindwara, alleging that he suppressed actual expenditures incurred on helicopter rides during campaign.

The petition filed by Singh alleged that Nath has shown just Rs 14.99 lakh as election expenses in his return and that also included expenses incurred on helicopter rides to just Rs 3.95 lakh.

Singh claimed that Nath toured the constituency for eight hours every day in his helicopter from April 6 to April 17.

Mentioning that Election Commission Guidelines estimate one hour ride cost at minimum of around Rs 75, 000, he said that the expenses shown by Nath on helicopter ride amounts to not more than a single day as per the guidelines.

The petition charged that Nath is a director in the company from which the helicopter was shown to be hired.

A separate election petition was also filed against Congress MP from Dhar reserve seat Gajendra Singh Rajukhedi by the defeated BJP candidate Mukam Singh Kirade.
