A complaint has been filed against Rahul Gandhi's nomination papers in Raebareli, Uttar Pradesh, demanding cancellation of the Congress MP's nomination papers. Advocate Ashok Pandey said, as quoted by ANI, "On behalf of Anirudh Pratap Singh, we have registered a complaint with the Returning Officer of Raebareli demanding cancellation of Rahul Gandhi's nomination papers on two grounds. First, Rahul Gandhi has been convicted for two years... He is ineligible to contest elections. Even though the Supreme Court has put a stay on Rahul Gandhi's conviction, it has not given any verdict like Afzal Ansari saying he can contest again... Since his stay on conviction does not involve permission to contest elections he should back off. Second, back in 2006, Rahul Gandhi once mentioned his Nationality as British. Being a British citizen, he cannot Constitutionally contest elections... After my complaint, Rahul Gandhi's representative was called in and my complaint has been accepted."

On the complaint against Rahul Gandhi, Congress leader Ajay Pal Singh said, "There's a candidate who registered a complaint against Rahul Gandhi after the period of complaining was over... The complainant said he has filed a writ challenging Rahul Gandhi's nationality... Rahul Gandhi's nomination was valid previously as well, and it is valid now also."
