KALYAN: A Shiv Sena cor­po­ra­tor of Kalyan-Dom­bivli Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion ( KDMC) was dis­qual­i­fied on Thurs­day for sub­mit­ting false caste cer­tifi­cate to con­test the civic elec­tions.

Susheela Mali won l ast year’s civic elec­tions f rom ward num­ber 89 (Man­gal­ragho Na­gar) which was re­served for Sched­uled Caste. Her doc­u­ments were proved to be bo­gus dur­ing an in­quiry by the caste cer­tifi­cate scru­tiny com­mit­tee. In 1995, she had con­tested from a ward which was re­served for OBC.

Mali con­tested elec­tions twice for two dif­fer­ent reser­va­tions which had raised doubts on the caste-re­lated doc­u­ments sub­mit­ted by her while fil­ing nom­i­na­tion. The is­sue was raised by an in­de­pen­dent can­di­date, Reshma Nichal, who had also filed her nom­i­na­tion for the same ward last year. Nichal ap­proached the elec­tions com­mis­sion com­plain­ing against Mali.

“The an­nounce­ment was made af­ter she re­ceived the no­tice of dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion from the com­mit­tee,” said Deepak Patil, KDMC deputy com­mis­sioner.
