The nomination papers of the ex-serviceman of the BSF, Tej Bahadur Yadav have been dismissed against the PM Modi. They are now preparing to go to the Supreme Court. After the nomination papers were dismissed, Tej Bahadur claimed that he had submitted necessary documents to the election officials. He apologized and said, “While living in the BSF, I raised the voice about that which I did not get wrong. I had decided to come to Benaras to uphold the voice of justice. If there was any problem in my nomination then an independent candidate Why did not they tell me about this while filing (my papers)?
He accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of resorting to “dictatorial steps” to stop himself from contesting elections. Sharad Bahadur Yadav said, “My grandfather was with Azad Hind Fauj, I am the son of a farmer and served as a young man … I can not fight even now, it is dictatorial.” His lawyer Rajesh Gupta said, “We will knock the door of the Supreme Court”. In fact, Varanasi district election officer Surendra Singh on Tuesday asked ‘Bahamur Yadav’ to give ‘Nominations’ in two sets of nomination papers of Tej Bahadur Yadav and submit it to 11 noon on Wednesday.
Tej Bahadur Yadav says
Significantly, Tej Bahadur nominated as an Independent on April 24 and as a Samajwadi Party candidate on April 29. Tej Bahadur Yadav had made different claims in both the nominations for the dismissal from BSF. At this point, the District Election Office issued instructions to Yadav to issue a no-objection certificate. Varanasi District Magistrate Surendra Singh citing Section 9 and Section 33 of the Representation of People Act, said that the nomination of Sharad Bahadur Yadav was not accepted because he could not present “necessary documents” in the prescribed time.
