A complaint was filed by NRI Madhavaram Nagender at American Election commission stating that Nara Lokesh bought a ticket paying $10,000 to “meet and greet” Obama for a while.
Lokesh as part of his US Tour in May 2015 met Obama and took photograph with him by paying hefty price. According to US laws, Only US citizens can make donations for fundraiser program and they should use the donations matter for their self publicity . if they violate , punishment like fine or Jail would be imposed. In Lokesh’s case, Lokesh is not a citizen of US and he used the photograph with Obama for his self publicity , alleged some papers.
The fundraiser programme has different plans akin to silver, gold and platinum. If a person pays $500, he will be allowed to enter the hall and listen to the address by the President, while those paying $5,000 each get a photo op with the president. Those in the ‘deluxe circle’ paying $10,000 would get to “meet and greet” Obama for a while, maybe a couple of minutes, too.
Madhavaram Nagender has gathered the clippings of TV channels and papers and submitted them to American Election Commission . EC has taken up the complaint and gave a complaint number MUR 6946. Lokesh might get notices once investigation takes a kick start.
