Election Petition to Challenge Poll in Arunachal

July 16, 2009

The Gauhati High Court received and admitted into court an Election Petition filed by former BJP MP Kiren Rijiju.

The Election Petition was filed against Congress MP Takam Sanjoy and others. It challenges the results of the poll held on 16th April 2009 in Arunachal Pradesh, and accuses Congress of vote rigging. In May, the Election Commission of India refused Rijiju’s request for a repoll of 65 voting booths.

The next hearing is scheduled for 20th August 2009.
