BHABUA/PATNA: Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi has been booked for allegedly 'promising' to give away laptops, colour TVs and dhoti-saris to voters at an election rally, with the party leader contesting the FIR and urged the EC to look into the matter.

Superintendent of Police of Kaimur district Harpreet Kaur told PTI that an FIR was lodged with Bhabua Police Station against Sushil Kumar Modi for inducing voters by promising colour TVs, laptops and dhoti-saris.   

Sushil Modi had allegedly made these promises yesterday during an address to an election meeting in favour of BJP andidate Anand Bhusan Pandey.         

The SP said that the case was registered on the basis of video footage of the meeting.  

Meanwhile, Sushil Modi, while talking to reporters at Patna, contested registration of the case against him and urged the Election Commission to look into the matter.       

"I had said to provide laptops to 50,000 boys and girls if our government is formed in Bihar along with colour TVs and dhoti-saris. It was meant to spell the vision of the party for the citizens and there is nothing wrong in it," Sushil Modi said.

"Every party spells what it intends to do after the election. So whats wrong in it?" he asked.
