An FIR was lodged at Kotwali police station here against BJP leader Bisahu Lal Sahu on Tuesday, a day after he said that Congress leader Vishwanath Singh mentioned the name of his mistress in the election form instead of his first wife.
The FIR was lodged against Sahu, BJP candidate from Anuppur in the by-election, based on a complaint by the wife of Congress leader Vishwanath Singh over Sahu's remarks on her.
"Vishwanath Singh didn't mention his first wife in the election form; rather he mentioned his mistress. Find out where his first is. He did not mention that he has one more wife. He should mention that she is his second wife," Sahu had said on Tuesday.
