Relief for Cong MLC candidate in Chamarajanagara-Mysuru

Mysuru: Congress candidate for the Legislative Council from Mysuru-Chamarajanagara Local Bodies’ Constituency Thimmaiah heaved a sigh of relief as the objections raised against his candidature were quashed at District Magistrate’s (DC) Court.

BJP Candidate R. Raghu (Kautilya) had filed three objections citing anomalies in the affidavits filed by Thimmaiah along with his nomination papers. They were related to non-mentioning of PAN, confusion over liabilities and ancestral properties.

Senior Advocate and Congress Legal Cell Chief A. S. Ponnanna who appeared on behalf of Thimmaiah argued against the BJP’s objections and finally Returning Officer and Deputy Commissioner Dr. Bagadi Goutham concluded with a fresh order to accept nomination papers.

Thimmaiah “we are correct in all the aspects. The objections were justan attempt to stop our campaign, but we will win the election. BJP’s mindset is exposed in the early stage itself,” Thimmaiah added.

Advocate Sheshagiri Rao argued on behalf of BJP.
