Chief Electoral Officer Teeka Ram Meena has made it clear that the Election Commission is currently seeking a report from District Collector about the veracity of the bribe video released by a Hindi TV channel.
“If found the video is true, the candidature of Raghavan will be cancelled,” said Teeka Ram Meena.
The video released by a Hindi TV channel, TV9 Bharata Varsha, showed that Raghavan sought a bribe of Rs. 5 crore from the channel team for his election fund. They approached him posing as a private party planning to build a five star hotel in Kozhikode.
However, Raghavan asserted that the video was fake and it was created to tarnish his image.
