Congress complaint against Ananth Kumar
Bangalore, April 7: The Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) spokesperson P.R. Ramesh on Sunday complained to Chief Electoral Officer Anil Kumar Jha against BJP's Bangalore South Candidate Ananth Kumar.

Congress claimed that BJP candidate Ananth Kumar was making factually incorrect claims in pamphlets distributed in the constituency.

Ramesh who submitted a memorandum to the CEO, alleging that Kumar was claiming that Adamya Chetana, a non-governmental organisation run by his wife, Tejaswini Ananth Kumar, was distributing free midday meals to hundreds of school children.

Ramesh claimed that Adamya Chetana was getting huge funds from the government and neither Kumar nor the organisation were spending money from their pockets to help poor children, reported media.

He also alleged that the pamphlets did not display the names of either the publisher or the printer in violation of the model code of conduct.

He demanded that the Election Commission (EC) direct Ananth Kumar to stop giving wrong information to voters.

CEO said that he had asked the Returning Officer of the constituency to send a report pertaining to the complaint, which would be passed on to the EC for further action.
