EC cancels bypoll to Rasara Assembly seat in Uttar Pradesh

The Election Commission on Monday cancelled bypoll to Rasara Assembly constituency in Uttar Pradesh after the process was stayed by the Supreme Court.



New Delhi: The Election Commission on Monday cancelled bypoll to Rasara Assembly constituency in Uttar Pradesh after the process was stayed by the Supreme Court.

The EC in a statement said, "...In view of the order of the Supreme Court, the Commission hereby rescinds its announcement of the by-election from 358-Rasara AC in the Legislative Assembly of Uttar Pradesh."

The bypoll was necessitated after BSP MLA Uma Shankar Singh was disqualified by the UP Governor on the recommendations of state Lokayukta NK Mehrotra.

But the apex court had recently stayed the bypoll on the grounds that a petition challenging the disqualification was still pending in Allahabad High Court.
