New Delhi, May 14: Gujarat Law and Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court against a High Court decision nullifying his 2017 election, The Hindu reported.
The High Court had held that the returning officer “illegally rejected” 429 postal ballots during the counting, while the victory margin was a mere 327 votes.
Congress candidate Ashwin Rathod had challenged the victory of his BJP rival from Dholka. Seeking a stay, Mr. Chudasama said the High Court had committed an error.
The court had found that the counting procedure went against the orders of the Election Commission of India.
