Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Assembly has declared as "vacant" Ratlam city Assembly seat after the nullification of election of independent MLA Paras Saklecha following a petition in the state High Court.

The notification declaring Ratlam city seat as vacant was issued by the State Assembly`s Principal Secretary, Rajkumar Pande yesterday, official sources said today.

As a result of this notification, Saklecha ceased to be a member of this House with effect from June 20, it added.
In April this year, the Indore bench of the MP High Court had aside Saklecha`s election in 2008 on the ground that he had launched a misleading campaign against his BJP rival Himmat Kothari. Later, the BJP leader filed an election petition with the HC.
