Kolkata: The Calcutta High Court on Wednesday (July 14) recognized the request of the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, who questioned the results of the Nandigram Parliament’s poll.
The court ordered the Electoral Commission to keep all records and equipment related to voting.
Judge Shampa Sarkar also sent a notice to Suvendu Adhikari of the Popular Party, who won the elections by a small margin in 1956.
Judge noted that the petition was presented in accordance with the provisions of the People’s Representation Act.
The Superior Court set the next date to hear the petition on August 12.
After Judge Kausik Chanda recused himself, Interim Court President Rajesh Bindal reassigned the case to Judge Sarkar.
Last month, Banerjee filed a motion in the High Court to question the voting procedures of the Nandigram parliamentary constituency.
