Rahul’s nomination from Amethi valid: EC

Lucknow: In a major relief to Congress President Rahul Gandhi, the Election Commission has declared as valid his nomination from the Amethi Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh.
An independent candidate on Saturday had raised objections over Gandhi’s nominations, alleging discrepancies over citizenship and educational qualifications in his affidavit. Ravi Prakash, lawyer for the complainant Dhruv Raj, claimed that he had documents that indicated that Gandhi was a British national. Taking note of the complaint, BJP spokesman GVL Narsimha also asked the Congress President to come clean on the issue. (IANS)
