AAP candidate for Gautam Buddh Nagar disqualified for failing to arrange 10 persons to back her nomination

As per a report in Times Now, of the 21 candidates who had filed nomination for the Gautam Budh Nagar seat, 8 have been disqualified.

The AAP candidate for UP’s Gautam Buddh Nagar, Shweta Sharma, has been disqualified for failing to produce enough people to back her nomination. As per a report in Times Now, she failed to arrange the 10 required number of proposers to back her nomination as per EC norms.

AAP had declared Shweta Sharma, a professor, as its candidate for UP’s Gautam Buddh Nagar. As per reports, as the AAP is not recognised as a national party by the EC, their candidate has to arrange a minimum of 10 people as proposers at the Returning Officer’s office to back her nomination. However, on Monday, which was the last day of filing nominations, the candidate failed to arrange 10 persons as proposers.

BN Singh, the DM of Gautam Buddh Nagar, has informed Times Now that Sharma’s nomination papers had only 1 proposer. The report quotes the officials saying that the AAP candidate was given enough time to arrange proposers but she could not come up with enough proposers.
