Allahabad, Wed, 01 Jul 2009 ANI

Allahabad July 01 (ANI): A petition was filed today in the Allahabad High Court questioning the election of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Varun Gandhi to the Lok Sabha form the Pilibhit constituency in Uttar Pradesh.


V M Singh, the Congress candidate who is the maternal uncle of Varun Gandhi, the loser in the recently concluded general election, has filed this petition.


Varun Gandhi had gained the votes by spreading hatred about a particular community by making inflammatory speeches, said Singh's advocate U N Sharma.
