VIJAY BAHADUR Kesri, the son of BJP nominee for Rajya Sabha elections Narain Singh Kesri, has sent a notice to several senior BJP leaders and Election Commission against Narain Singh Kesri’s candidature.
When contacted in Bhopal, Narain Kesri accused his son of bringing disrepute to his name through his objectionable acts. He said he had deprived his son of right to inherit his (Kesri’s) property.
In the notice, Vijay Kesri alleged that his father is not eligible for contesting the elections, as he has been withdrawing pension of his two wives who are no more alive. He has also married Urmila Mishra for the fourth time even as his third wife is alive, which is violation of the Hindu marriage laws, Vijay Kesri said in the notice.
Narain Kesri’s two wives, Kesu Bai and Sunder Bai, died while in government service. He had recently married the fourth time, even though his third wife Shobha Bai is alive. He should be punished under Section 494 of the IPC for this, the notice said.
Besides, Narain Kesri should be punished under sections 420, 467,468, 471 and 120 of the IPC for withdrawing family pensions of his deceased wives.
Vijay Kesri also alleged that his father had furnished wrong information to the Election Commission in the affidavit about his properties during the last Rajya Sabha elections.
Though Narain Kesri had property worth crores of rupees in his and his family members’ names, he did not disclose this in the affidavit to the Election Commission, which is punishable under sections 3,4, 5 and 13 of Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, the notice said.
