National,Politics, Thu, 14 May 2009 IANS

Lucknow, May 13 (IANS) Varun Gandhi, the controversial Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Pilibhit constituency in Uttar Pradesh, had heated arguments with some poll officials Wednesday, accusing them of being biased in favour of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) candidate.


As Pilibhit went to the polls, Varun Gandhi alleged that some election officials at the Khananka polling booth in Bisalpur subdistrict were asking people to vote in favour of BSP candidate Ganga Charan Rajput.



He also accused the poll officials of not allowing his supporters to exercise their franchise on false grounds.



Subdivisional magistrate M.A. Akhtar told IANS: 'All the charges made by Varun Gandhi are false. No one is preventing his supporters from their casting vote.'



District Magistrate Ajay Chauhan said: 'We have been getting a minute by minute account of what is happening at polling booths in Pilibhit. Till now, we have not received any complaint regarding poll officials being biased towards the BSP candidate or contestants from another party.'



Pilibhit is some 250 km from Lucknow.



Varun Gandhi has been in the news ever since his reported hate speeches in Pilibhit earlier this year for which he was jailed by the state government.
