Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Election Commission received a strong request from an Independent Lok Sabha candidate from Madhya Pradesh.
Kishore Samrite, who is contesting as an independent candidate from Madhya Pradesh's Balaghat constituency, has requested the Election Commission to either provide ₹75 lakh or permit him to sell his kidney to gather funds for contesting the polls.
Stating he doesn't have money to contest, Samrite also requested the EC to "ask some bank" to give him a loan. Samrite had earlier represented Lanji Lok Sabha constituency seat in Balaghat district as an SP candidate.
Polling in Madhya Pradesh will be held in four phases - on April 29, May 6, 12 and 19. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.
