BJP reveals mystery behind 'suspicious box' on Modi's chopper


NEW DELHI: The Chitradurga district unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday said the “suspicious box” that was spotted being carried out of Narendra Modi’s helicopter had electronic equipment and party logos to be used on the dais for the prime minister’s speech in Karnataka last week.

The Congress has demanded an investigation by the Election Commission. On April 12, Youth Congress leader Srivatsa tweeted what he claimed was a video of the incident. “What was in the box,” he asked on Twitter. “There seems to be something inexplicable happening which needs answers. Will the Election Commission check the contents of the box?”
