Bhopal, Mar 16 (PTI) Returning officer A P Singh on

Monday asked representatives of two Rajya Sabha nominees of

the BJP, including Jyotiraditya Scindia, to give replies on

Tuesday to written objections submitted against their

nomination papers.

Two Congress candidates for the March 26 Rajya Sabha

elections from Madhya Pradesh, Digvijaya Singh and Phool Singh

Baraiya, on Monday filed written objections against BJP

nominees Scindia and Sumer Singh Solanki, seeking that their

nomination papers be rejected on certain grounds.

I have asked representatives of both BJP candidates

(Scindia and Solanki) to come to my office at 10 AM (on

Tuesday) to give replies to the written objections. After that

I will take a call on their nomination papers, A P Singh told

PTI.

A P Singh, the MP assembly''s principal secretary, is

the returning officer for the Rajya Sabha polls.

On the date of scrutiny of the nomination papers on

Monday, Digvijaya Singh petitioned the returning officer

stating Scindia has not furnished details of cases pending

against him, Congress leader and advocate JP Dhanopia said.

Neither Scindiajis affidavit and nor his nomination

papers have the mention of cases pending against him,

Dhanopia added.

Likewise, Baraiya has demanded that Solankis

nominations be scrapped as his resignation from the college

where he taught was accepted a day after he filed his

nomination papers on March 13, he added.

Solanki, who was an assistant professor of history at

Shaheed Bheema Nayak Government Postgraduate College, Barwani,

resigned from his government job on March 12, Dhanopia said.

We have told the returning officer that Solanki

cannot contest the elections as he filed his nomination papers

on March 13 when his resignation was not accepted yet. His

resignation was accepted on March 14, he said.

So Baraiya has demanded that Solanki''s nomination be

rejected as it violated rules, Dhanopia said.

Three Rajya Sabha seats from Madhya Pradesh, currently

held by Digvijaya Singh, and BJP leaders Prabhat Jha and

Satyanarayan Jatiya, are falling vacant next month. The

Congress has re-nominated Digvijaya Singh.

March 18 is the last date for withdrawal of nomination

papers. PTI LAL MAS
