Socorro Panch’s Election Cancelled

The Administrative Tribunal on Thursday cancelled the election of Sandeep Vazarkar from ward No. 9 of Socorro panchayat holding it to be null and void and declared Rajesh Kavthankar as the duly elected panch from the ward.

Vazarkar was declared elected from the ward reserved for OBC on 5th May 2007 as he had polled 138 votes against the 119 secured by Kavthankar.

However, Kavthankar challenged the elections on grounds that Vazarkar was not belonging to the OBC and had in fact raised this objection during the scrutiny of nominations which was rejected by the Returning Officer.
