MSU to include advocate’s name in voters list - Guj HC

Gujarat High Court has directed M S University authorities to include name of a candidate, who wants to contest the forthcoming senate elections, in the voters’ list.
The court issued the order based on a petition filed by advocate Niraj Jain, who had moved the court seeking its directive to include his name in the voters list as a registered graduate of Faculty of Law.
Justice R M Chhaya on Tuesday directed the university to include Jain’s name in the voters list of the constituency of law subject till further orders of the court. The court has issued notice returnable on November 9, when it will further hear the case.
Jain’s form was rejected by MSU authorities on the ground that the photograph in his form was not attested. Jain had filed a special civil application pleading court’s directives for inclusion of his name in the voters’ list arguing that as his application had been attested by a notary, there was no need to attest the photograph in the application. Jain, a graduate from Faculty of Law, wants to contest the forthcoming senate elections from the registered graduates’ category. Elections for the registered graduates’ category of the senate will be held on December 18.
