Delhi High Court rejects plea seeking 6-year ban on PM Modi to contest elections

Srinagar, April 29: The Delhi High Court on Monday rejected a petition seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Narendra Modi from contesting elections for 6 years for allegedly seeking votes in the name of gods and places of worship.

The plea, filed by lawyer Anand S. Jondhale, was rejected by Justice Sachin Datta, saying it is “thoroughly misconceived”.

The court said that it cannot direct the Election Commission of India to take a particular stance on any complaint.

The court said the petition is thoroughly misconceived on multiple reasons, including that once the petitioner submitted a complaint to the Election Commission of India on April 10, there was no occasion for him to invoke the extraordinary jurisdiction of this court even before the disposal of the complaint by the commission.

“The petitioner presupposes that there has been a violation of the model code of conduct. This presupposition is completely unjustified. It is not permissible for this court to direct the ECI to take a particular view on the petitioner complaint or any other complaint for that matter and issue peremptory directions as sought by the petitioner,” the court.
