The Delhi High Court on Monday agreed to hear plea filed by 11 aspirants who were allegedly not permitted to file nomination papers from the New Delhi Assembly seat.
A division bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Harishankar said that it will hear the matter tomorrow.
The petition sought direction to concerned authorities to make necessary procedures and to streamline the smooth filing of the nomination papers by all candidates from all spheres of the Indian society.
The plea said: “Nomination papers were wrongly, illegally, arbitrarily and unconstitutionally rejected and thereby, they have been illegally and unconstitutionally deprived of their constitutional rights. When the said petitioner raised objections, the Election Officer not completely disregarded the same but also was intimated by the police force deployed thereat.”
