In the latest development in the Haryana Rajya Sabha polls controversy, Congress-backed independent candidate and senior lawyer R K Anand on Saturday filed a petition in Punjab-Haryana High Court seeking to put a stay on the victory of media baron Subhash Chandra.
The leader in his petition has alleged that someone had changed the original pen
provided by the election officials with another one, which resulted in Chandra’s victory.
The high court will now hear the mater on August 1.
Earlier this month, RK Anand wrote a letter to Vice President Hamid Ansari, urging him to not let BJP-backed Independent candidate and media baron Subhash Chandra take oath as an MP.
In his letter to the Vice President, RK Anand had stated, “Chandra should not be allowed to sit in Parliament till the whole issue is decided and the case is investigated”.
Also, Anand had lodged his complaint with the Election Commission, alleging someone had changed the original pen provided by the election officials with another one for a while which resulted in some votes were being declared as invalid.
