KDMC SHIV SENA CORPORATOR DISQUALIFIED
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.
