BSP's elephant goes a-missing
A balloon elephant, fluttering high above the Bahujan Samaj Party head office in Gorakhpur, has disappeared. Partymen complain of police involvement and high-handedness in the episode.
BSP district president Durga Prasad Yadav has lodged a written complaint with the Uttar Pradesh chief electoral officer. He alleged that the district police 'misused' its authority on the ruling party's instruction.
"The balloon elephant was flying on the top of the office," he said, "It did not defy the Election Commission's model Code of Conduct in any way."
