Shimla, November 12

Congress today lodged a complaint before the Election Commission of India (ECI) against BJP and others for circulating a forged letter on the letter head of AICC state incharge Rajeev Shukla to influence voters.

The complaint filed by the Congress Legal Cell points out that the letter addressed to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge was never written by Shukla, a Rajya Sabha MP, who is incharge of Himachal Congress.

"It is nothing but a feeble attempt by the BJP to damage Congress," the party claimed.

In its complaint, Congress termed the circulation of the forged letter as a sign of BJP frustration on sensing that they will not find favour with the electorate of Himachal.

The party demanded registration of FIR against state BJP President under Sections 468, 469, 471, 472, 44 and 120 B of the IPC along with other relevant provisions of the Representation of People Act, 1951.
