Mira Bhayandar news: BJP Corporator Dr Nayana Vasani’s nomination rejected for concealing criminal case

In another major set back to the BJP, the nomination of their heavyweight candidate and sitting corporator Dr Nayana Vasani was rejected during scrutiny by Returning Officer Archana Kadam.

Vasani had filed her candidature from ward B of panel number 20 in Mira Road. The rejection followed in response to objections raised by Sena and NCP rivals on grounds of suppressing material information in her affidavits related to a particular section of the IPC in a case registered against her at the local police station.

Vasani was in the process of seeking legal remedies to challenge the rejection, sources said.

If a candidate leaves blank any column seeking information on criminal antecedents, educational qualifications, assets and liabilities, then it would result in rejection by the returning officer at the scrutiny stage itself.

However if there is suppression of information or misinformation then it would be decided by a detailed inquiry in an election petition by the court.
