Media confirmed as below:
BJP candidate and sitting MP Navjot Singh Sidhu filed his nomination papers on April 22nd with great pomp and show when he covered the distance to the office of the Deputy Commissioner from his residence riding an elephant. Sidhu, accompanied by Deputy Chief Minister, Punjab, Sukhbir Singh Badal and BJP leader Balbir Punj, enjoyed the elephant’s ride to file nomination papers. On another elephant, former Punjab minister Bikram Singh Majithia, local MLAs Anil Joshi, Raminder Singh Baloria were riding. Whereas, the rest of the Akali and BJP activists were riding horses followed by a sea of crowd that also reached the office of the Deputy Commissioner-cum-Election Returning Officer for Amritsar Parliament constituency Bhagwant Singh.
The slogan shouting supporters of Sidhu barged into the office of the Returning Officer, a clear violation of the model code of conduct.
As per EC norms only five persons are permitted with the candidate into the office of a Returning Officer but the numbers in the case of Sidhu were fairly large.
Online complaint lodged with the Punjab Police bearing No. 442937672, Ministry of Environment and Forest No. MOEAF/E/2012/00182 and with the President of India office No.PRSEC/E/2012/08756.
Past history of elephant abuse by Navjot Singh Sidhu:
1. Protest on elephant ride reported by the Tribune dated June 8, 2006.

3. Protest reported on elephant ride on December 20, 2011.
4. Protest on elephant ride on June 22, 2012.
It would be pertinent to mention here that the Election Commission of India issued orders on dated November 20, 1997 not to abuse live elephant during elections, hence Sidhu violated these orders.
Navjot Singh Sidhu conviction has been suspended by the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India till the disposal of his appeal and we are taking legal opinion to move to the court for reconsideration.
The Chief Wild Life Warden of Punjab, DFO concerned is here by requested to treat this as a notice under section 55 of the Wild Life Protection Act, 1972 for strict legal action against Navjot Sigh Sidhu, Balbir Punj and so called owners of the abused elephants, they are further advised to issue orders for strict compliance of the Guidelines for care and management of captive elephants issued by the Government of India on January 8, 2008, frame rules and regulations for the national heritage animal of India and ensure the rescue and rehabilitation of captive elephants as per CZA orders.
Hence the Chief Election Commissioner of India is hereby humbly requested to treat this mail as election petition, like wise PIL for Supreme Court of India in the interest of public.
We hereby authorized Shri Abhishek Kadyan, Media Adviser to UN affiliated OIPA - www.oipa.org to deliver this petition in person to the Chief Election Commissioner of India and to move PIL.
