Chhatarpur(MP): BJP leader Uma Bharti was today forced to cancel her plans to attend a Dussehra programme in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh on a district official's order following which she shot off a letter to Election Commission as to why the Prime Minister and Sonia Gandhi were allowed to attend a similar event in Delhi.





In the letter to the Chief Election Commissioner, Bharti said that she was asked by the District Magistrate- who is also the Returning Officer- of Chhattarpur, Madhya Pradesh not to attend a Ramlila programme in the district. She was also scheduled to visit Ratangarh where a stampede killed 115 people yesterday.

Baba Ramdev was also invited for the Dussehra programme in Chhattarpur.

The BJP Vice President said that she cancelled her programme after the district magistrates of both the districts asked her not to visit the area.
