Election 2019 LIVE: DCW Demands FIR in Connection With Pamphlets Targeting Atishi
Reading out the contents of the pamphlet, Atishi broke down twice at a press conference.

The court has also dismissed the petition filed by sacked BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav, questioning the Election Commission's decision to reject his nomination papers from Varanasi constituency.

Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi will campaign in Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Delhi today. Gandhi’s first stop will be Sirsa in Haryana where he will rally for Congress candidate Ashok Tanwar. After Haryana, it will be Madhya Pradesh where he will campaign in Sagar district. In Delhi, Gandhi will address a public meeting at the Ramlila Maidan.

On the other hand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be in West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh. PM Modi will cover Bankura and neighbouring Purulia. Both these constituencies will go to polls on May 12 in the sixth phase of Lok Sabha elections. Later in the day, PM Modi will then cover three districts in UP — Azamgarh, Jaunpur and Prayagraj.

Congress general secretary and eastern UP in-charge Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will also be holding rallies in Uttar Pradesh. Gandhi will campaign in Pratapgarh, Jaunpur and Sultanpur. At Jaunpur, both PM Modi and Priyanka Gandhi are expected to attack each other during their respective rallies. She will also hold a roadshow in Sultanpur.

Also in court today, the Election Commission will apprise the Supreme Court about the grievances of former BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav who was contesting from Varanasi on an SP ticket against PM Modi before the EC rejected his candidature.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will meet her Andhra Pradesh counterpart Chandrababu Naidu in Kharagpur.
