He is presently staying in Hotel Cotton County and thereby he has been distributing cash to the community leaders and other local influential persons to distribute the same to the voters." Navjot Singh Sidhu's Vocal Chords Injured Again Due to 'Extensive' Lok Sabha Elections Campaign, Doctors Advise Rest. 

Adding more, it pointed out, "This will have an impact on the results of the election. He has been influencing the officials including police to work for Congress party. Since DKS is sitting minister, the officials are also supporting the distribution of the cash."

Requesting the CEO to take prompt action, the letter said, "Hence we request you to have a strong vigil against DK Shivakumar and take action and oblige." It is to be known that the seventh phase of Lok Sabha Elections are going to take place on May 19 and the results would be announced on May 23.
