The Madhya Pradesh High Court Friday dismissed a petition challenging School Education Minister Archana Chitnis’s election from Burhanpur constituency in the 2008 assembly polls.

Justice R.C. Mishra also slapped a fine of Rs.10,000 on the petitioner saying that it was a frivolous plea with no substantial evidence to prove the allegations, the minister’s advocate, Mrigendra Singh, said.

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader Manoj Kumar Agrawal had challenged Chitnis’ election, alleging that she had won using the religious card as well as misusing government machinery in gross violation of the model code of conduct and hence her election should be set aside.
