Former constable of Border Security Force Tej Bahadur Yadav has filed a petition against Prime Minister Narendra Modi as his nomination to contest election against Modi, was cancelled by the returning officer.
BSF officer Tej Bahadur Yadav has filed a petition against Modi, and the matter for next hearing has been stated to be on August 21.
The whole matter arose when the nomination paper of dismissed BSF officer Tej Bahadur Yadav was rejected by the returning officer for Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency.
The reason that was given over this whole drama was that he failed to submit a certificate that he was actually not sacked for disloyalty or corruption.
He gave a plea against the cancellation that was done saying that his nomination paper was only rejected because the man, on the other hand, giving a tough fight to him was Prime Minister Modi.
He said this to be an infringement of the constitutional rights and questioned the authorities on their partial behaviour.
He further said that if his nomination paper had got cancelled, then PM Modi’s nomination should also have been rejected because he had not submitted the details of his family in the nomination paper. The ex Border Security officer also said that the decision of the Election Commission is discriminatory.
Earlier Arvind Kejriwal had also shown his agony over the whole matter as he tweeted saying that Modi is very weak and the jawan has won in front of him.
Tej Bahadur was dismissed from his position on the grounds of uploading a video where it was shown that poor quality of food was being served to the jawans.
On April 29, he submitted second set of papers as the Samajwadi Party nominee, but his nomination got cancelled because he did not give out this information.
Allahabad High Court has now issued a notice to Modi in connection with Tej Bahadur’s petition challenging his election from Varanasi constituency.
