Congress candidate from Tikamgarh assembly constituency Yadvendra Singh has complained that Bharatiya Janshakti party president Uma Bharti, who is contesting the election against him, has been distributing money to voters.

Singh, in a complaint faxed to the Election Commission last night, alleged that Bharti through her nephew Rajju has paid Rs 5,000 for the construction of a temple in Lar village, where she had also given a cheque for Rs 10,000 to one Devi Singh.

The Congress nominee said that by doing so, Bharti has violated the model code of conduct for elections and demanded that the matter should be investigated and action should be taken against her.
