Gwalior: BJP National General Secretary, Narendra Singh Tomar and party's Madhya Pradesh President, Prabhat Jha were granted bail by a railway court today in a case of campaigning in train during 2009 Lok Sabha elections.

A case of violation of People's Representation Act were registered against the BJP leader for campaigning in train for the party candidates in Lok Sabha elections during a journey from Gwalior to Sheopur.

A non-bailable warrant was issued against the leaders and they were asked to present before the railway magistrate court on October 30. The duo, however, appeared before the court today and granted bail.

The two were charged under section 188 of the IPC for violating People's Representation Act which bars campaigning in trains.

The two were said to have campaigned not only in the train but also at various stops in the 200 km long journey between Gwalior and Sheopur.
