BJP moves EC against Cong’s RS nominee
NEW DELHI: The BJP on Tuesday approached the Election Commission demanding that the nomination of Congress leader, Naranbhai Rathwa, for the Rajya Sabha elections in Gujarat be quashed because of several irregularities in his form. A delegation of senior party leaders, including Union ministers Ravi Shankar Prasad, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Piyush Goyal, approached the poll panel, seeking action against Rathwa and PK Valera, a Congress-backed independent candidate. Naqvi said they have demanded that the Congress candidate’s nomination be quashed. Goyal said the BJP delegation informed the EC about “irregularities” in nomination forms of Rathwa and Valera.
