Swaraj India demands reconsideration of rejected nominations

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Swaraj India chief Yogendra Yadav today met the Delhi Election Commissioner, seeking his direction to returning officers concerned to reconsider rejection of nomination papers filed by 24 candidates of his party. “Nominations of 24 of our candidates have been rejected arbitrarily during scrutiny. We have requested Commissioner S K Srivastava to direct the Returning Officers concerned to reevaluate the nomination papers,” he said. Yadav, who spent more than four hours waiting for the Commissioner at the EC office, claimed the nominations were rejected due to “small errors”. “The nomination of a woman candidate was cancelled as she did not specify her gender. One of the documents did not have signature and leaving the column for father’s, mother’s, husband’s name blank were some of the reasons,” he said. The Delhi State Election Commission had yesterday rejected around 40 per cent of 4,605 nominations filed for the April 23 elections to the three municipal corporations during scrutiny of documents. “Such rejections make a mockery of democracy and violate written rules,” the Swaraj India leader said. He also alleged that candidates of big political parties were allowed to make corrections in their papers. “The AAP and BJP candidates were making corrections in front of us, but we were treated differently,” he claimed. Yadav said the Commissioner assured him of instructing all ROs to reevaluate all nominations that have been rejected. “All our candidates will go to the ROs with their applications. We are hopeful of getting justice,” he said. Meanwhile, independent candidates and those belonging to minor parties protested and raised slogans against the EC for rejecting their nominations in a similar way. “One of our candidates’ nomination was rejected for not striking off a particular word,” said Girish, zone co-ordinator of Bahujan Samaj Party.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Tribal bodies demand Zeliang govt’s resignation in Nagaland

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Tribal organisations in Nagaland today demanded the resignation of the TR Zeliang-led government in the aftermath of the killing of two persons and injuries to several others in clashes between the police and a mob. The demand was made by the Joint Coordination Committee (JCC), comprising Naga tribal organisations, during the send-off service of the two deceased at the Agri-Expo junction in Dimapur this afternoon. After the send-off service, the bodies of the two deceased were rallied through NH 29. The burial service will be held in the state capital here tomorrow. JCC representative Vekhosayi, while condoling the demise of the two persons during last night’s public movement against the government’s decision to hold polls today to 12 councils, said “their sacrifice should not go in vain”. The JCC also demanded the suspension of the police personnel “involved in the indiscriminate firing”, along with the Dimapur Police Commissioner. It also urged the government to nullify the polling held to the 12 town councils spread over the state today. Meanwhile, business establishments, government offices and educational institutions remained closed as the JCC has called for an indefinite bandh since last night. A government vehicle was set ablaze for defying the bandh call in Dimapur today. During the day, a government-registered motorcycle was reduced to ashes while the vehicle of former chief secretary Lalthara, who is currently the Advisor to Chief Minister TR Zeliang, was also smashed by bandh supporters. The State Civil Secretariat and Office of the State Election Commission also remained closed for the day, while the ministers preferred to move in private vehicles. Despite the boycott call of the tribal organisations, polling to nine town councils — Jalukie, Peren, Naginimora, Tobu, Tizit, Pungro, Shamator, Aboi and Noklak — were held peacefully. However, no voter turned up in Tening and Longkhim, while unruly mobs went into a rampage and damaged all the 11 polling stations as well as the EVMs in Longleng, because of which polling could not be held. Nagaland has 32 councils, which include three municipal councils and 29 town councils. Nominations in six councils were not filed, while the candidates of four councils withdrew from the fray, in compliance with the tribal organisations’ directive of boycotting the polls with a 33-per cent women reservation.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
