The Kerala High Court today issued a notice to Congress leader and former Union Minister Sashi Tharoor on a petition challenging his election from the Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha constituency.

Justice Bhavadasan, while admitting the election petition filed by S Suresh, Thiruvananthapuram District President of BJP, posted the case to August 20 for further consideration.

According to the petitioner, Tharoor had failed to disclose the assets of his wife, late Sunanda Pushkar in the affidavit and therefore the acceptance of his nomination was improper.

The petitioner also sought to set aside the election of Tharoor and declare O Rajagopal, who finished a close second, as elected.
