Patna HC stays Madhepura result
The Patna high court today imposed a ban on the declaration of the result of the Madhepura Lok Sabha constituency until the Election Commission disposed of submissions on the alleged irregularities during the October 3 polling.
A division bench constituting Justice B P Singh and Justice I P Singh issued the directive to the Election Commission to hear Janata Dal-United candidate Sharad Yadav or his representative tomorrow about the alleged largescale rigging in the constituency.
A public interest petition, filed by the Lalan Singh of the JD-U, sought repolling in the entire constituency.
In New Delhi, the Election Commission today withheld results of the Madhepura Lok Sabha constituency and issued summons to Sharad Yadav and the JD-U office bearers for a meeting tomorrow.
Sharad Yadav withdrew his fast-unto-death following the Patna high court order.
Senior Rashtriya Janata Dal leader and former state minister Bhola Prasad Singh went on an indefinite hunger strike in Patna demanding the immediate arrest of Sharad Yadav for his alleged involvement in the killing of a RJD supporter during polling in the constituency on October 3.
