On Wednesday, the Apex Court reserved its order on the petition filed by dismissed Border Security Force (BSF) constable Tej Bahadur against the election of PM Narendra Modi from Varanasi parliamentary constituency.
A bench of the Supreme Court, headed by CJI S A Bobde reserved the order on Tej Bahadur’s plea.
The dismissed BSF constable had filed an appeal before the Top Court, challenging the Allahabad HC which had dismissed his plea on the ground that neither he is a voter from Varanasi constituency in Uttar Pradesh nor he had represented himself in the election against PM Modi.
Bahadur wanted to fight an election against PM Modi from the Varanasi constituency, but his nomination, before the election was rejected on the ground of his “false submissions” to the Election Commission.
Bahadur was dismissed from service after he released a video in 2017 complaining about the quality of food served to soldiers.
