ECI disposes off Sharad Yadav’s application over claim on party symbol

New Delhi [India]: The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Wednesday disposed off senior Janata Dal (United) [JD(U)] leader Sharad Yadav’s application staking claim over party symbol, saying it was not supported with relevant documents.

Last month Sharad Yadav had submitted a memorandum to the commission, staking claim over the party.

The JD(U), headed by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, also approached the ECI to file a counter plea against a petition submitted by Yadav.

The JD-U also submitted that Yadav had voluntarily left the party and had involved in anti-party activities. The delegation, who filed the counter plea, consisted of R.C.P. Singh, Sanjay Jha, Lallan Singh and K.C. Tyagi. (ANI)
