Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis’ nomination

Deshmukh has claimed that is that the notary’s license had expired and hence the nomination filed by Devendra Fadnavis for the upcoming Assembly elections ought to be cancelled on the grounds that the affidavit was incorrect.

Following this, the CM’s representative submitted before the EC that the said notary’s license had been renewed and that when he notarised the CM’s affidavit he was holding a legal and valid license. The same was accepted by the Election Commission.

Apart from this 2 more objections were raised against the nomination of CM by Aam Aadmi Party candidate and one Satish Uke. These two were also rejected by the EC.

The opposition parties should would be better off fighting elections on legitimate issues and points instead of wasting efforts in getting the candidature of CM Devendra Fadnavis cancelled on frivolous grounds and wasting the EC’s time in such a high voltage election season.
