The two were charged of campaigning for the Congress in a place of worship during the recent by- elections in the Station Ghanapur constituency. They had not attended when summoned by the court. Following this, the NBW was issued on them.
It may be mentioned here that there was a by-election after Congress MLA Rajaiah resigned to the Station Ghanapur seat. During the campaign, the union minister and the MP went into a place of worship with Congress shawls and offered prayers. A case was filed against the two.
