New Delhi, May 9: The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed plea of former BSF constable Tej Bahadur Yadav against rejection of his nomination from Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency.
A Bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi rejected the plea saying “We don’t find any merit to entertain this petition”.
Yadav had moved the apex court on Monday (May 6) after the Returning Officer (RO) rejected his documents over discrepancies last week.
The former BSF Jawan was seeking to contest the Lok Sabha elections against Prime Minister Narendra Modi on a ticket from the Opposition alliance ( Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal) in Uttar Pradesh.
Earlier, he had filed nomination as an independent.
