Delhi Elections 2020: Plea Against AAP Candidate Dismissed by the Delhi High Court - TNBCLive

On Monday, the Delhi High Court has rejected a petition against an AAP candidate. Vishesh Ravi, who is fighting from Delhi’s Karol Bagh seat, was accused of concealing his educational qualification in his nomination papers filed before the Election Commission.

Mr Ravi’s opponent candidate BJP’s Yogendra filed the petition, who alleged that there were discrepancies in his poll affidavit.

“It has been revealed in the media that AAP’s Vishesh Ravi has stated in his 2013 poll affidavit that he graduated by completing B.Com from Chaudhary Charan Singh University in 2008,” Mr Chandolia said.

“But in 2015, he said that he is pursuing BA from IGNOU. Now he has mentioned tenth class pass as his highest educational qualification. I filed a complaint regarding this with the returning officer but he asked me to approach the court,” he added. Delhi will have its election on 70 Assembly seats on February 8, while the counting will take place on February 11.
