In a landmark judgment of the Manipur High Court, election of M Prithviraj as the representative of Moirang Assembly Constituency in the 10th Manipur Legislative Assembly has been declared null and void. Justice Koteshwar today announced the court that the declaration for electing of M Prithviraj as the representative of Moirang Assembly constituency by the presiding officer in 2012 is null and void. The verdict of justice Koteshwar bench however is yet to be made available as verdict of two other pleas associated with the case is reserved by the justice.
The case was filed by P Sharatchandra, the rival candidate during the state general election 2012 at Manipur High Court in April 2012 praying to declare the election of Prithviraj as null and void and consequent upon his rejection the petitioner also plead to declare him as the representative of Moirang Assembly constituency under the Peoples’ Representative Act as the election fought was 2 cornered – which means there was a straight fight between P Sharatchandra and M. Prithviraj. Besides, the petitioner also pleaded for appropriate action against Prithiviraj for submitting false affidavit to the Election Commission of India.
Mention may be made that Imphal times is the first newspaper to report that affidavit of M Prithviraj submitted to the ECI for contesting the 10th Manipur legislative Assembly was under scanner. This newspaper had carried a lead story under the heading “ MLA Prithviraj’s affidavit under ECI scanner; directs state CEO to initiate necessary action” in our April 22, 2013 edition.
