Lucknow, Jan 31: BSP supremo and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati
today cancelled the nomination given to Nahid Munawwar Hasan from
Gangoh seat in Saharanpur district, and has given the party ticket to
Ms Shagufta Khan.

A BSP press release today said that Nahid Munawwar Hasan was shown on
hidden camera by India TV seeking money and saying that he would be
spending more than the limit set by the Election Commission.

Mayawati said such malpractice by political party candidates during
election will not be tolerated.

"We will not tolerate such activities of any of our candidates. We
also expect the Election Commission to give strong directives to other
political parties to take action against candidates found seeking
money in the sting operation", Mayawati said.

"BSP is a disciplined party and the party leadership was forced to
take action against such persons. Our party has already taken action
against several leaders, ministers and MLAs found involved in
malpractices", she said.
