Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh State Tourism Development Corporation spent Rs 4,20,800 on account of the visit of veteran BJP leader, LK Advani, to Pachmarhi in the state in June last year.

This is revealed by the documents obtained by RTI activist Shehla Masood, who was murdered near her house here in August.

Documents reveal that as much as Rs 17,789 were spent on 'high tea' for Advani's guests at the city's Palash Residency Hotel.

The BJP leader, who had come on a private visit, was declared a 'state guest'.

Rs 13,054 were spent on the stay of Advani's PA, Deepak Chopra, at a city hotel a day before Advani's arrival.

Further, Rs 54,871 were spent on making transport arrangements for Advani's visit to Pachmarhi.
