A sessions court on Tuesday reserved its order on a revision application filed against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for filing defective affidavit from Maninagar constituency in 2012 during assembly election. The order will be pronounced on February 7.
The complainant Nishant Verma, a member of Aam Adami Party, has filed the revision application alleging that Modi hid his marital status in 2012 which came to light only in 2014 when he filed his nomination for contesting general election from Vadodara seat. Verma has alleged that by leaving the marital status blank in 2012, Modi violated Representation of Public Act 125 (a).
Earlier a magisterial court had disposed Verma’s application stating that “Modi has committed an offense” under RPA. But the court also held that it took a long time for filing the complaint which can’t be entertained now.
Following the order, Verma filed a revision application. The arguments completed on Tuesday and the order was reserved for pronouncment.
