HC notice to Shashi Tharoor on election petition

Last Updated: Thursday, July 31, 2014 - 20:17

Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Thursday issued notice to Congress leader and former Union Minister Sashi Tharoor on a petition challenging his election from Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha constituency.
Justice Bhavadasan, while admitting the election petition filed by S Suresh, Thiruvananthapuram District President of BJP, posted the case to Aug 20 for further consideration.

According to the petitioner, Tharoor had failed to disclose the assets of his wife, the late Sunanda Pushkar in the affidavit and therefore the acceptance of his nomination was improper.

The petitioner also sought to set aside election of Tharoor and declare O Rajagopal, who finished a close second, as elected.
