Scrutiny of Tharoor nomination put off

The scrutiny of nomination papers of Union minister and Congress candidate from the Lok Sabha seat in Thiruvananthapuram Shashi Tharoor was posted to Tuesday for hearing following objections raised by the poll agent of LDF candidate when it was taken up on Monday.

CPI-M supported LDF candidate Bennet Abraham’s poll agent complained that Tharoor has not included all his assets in the affidavit filed by him along with nomination papers, election office sources said.

Similarly, causing anxiety to the UDF, a decision on its candidate Jose K Mani’s nomination papers in Kottayam was deferred to March 26 on complaints from the LDF that it contained defects during scrutiny on Monday.

Considering objections, the returning officer deferred the decision on Jose K Mani’s nomination to March 26.
