New Delhi [India], August 4 (ANI): Days after senior Congress Leader Ahmed Patel filed his nomination papers as the party's candidate for the upcoming Rajya Sabha elections from Gujarat, a complaint was filed against him for filing false information in the affidavit of his nomination papers. A complaint was registered to the Election Commission (EC) on Thursday from Syed Naqvi, a resident of Delhi, alleging that Patel, while filing his nomination, stated that no FIR has been registered on his name. Naqvi says that an FIR was filed against Patel in November, 2016 in the Lodhi Garden Police Station in New Delhi and hence, appealed to the EC to reject his nomination. He asked the EC to take appropriate actions against Patel and said that legal actions must be taken against him. Patel, 67, had filed his nomination for the Rajya Sabha elections on July 26th. (ANI)
