The petitioner who had challenged the appointment of Bhopal MP Pragya Singh Thakur to the Lok Sabha has been given a month's time by the Madhya Pradesh High Court on Monday to file a written objection to MP Pragya Thakur's delay in filing a reply to his challenge. Bhopal-based journalist Rakesh Dixit had filed a petition against Thakur's appointment to the Lok Sabha.
In his petition, he had alleged that the controversial leader had delivered speeches on religious lines, thus violating election norms. As per the petition, Thakur violated provisions of section 123 of the Representation of the People Act, 1951.
While hearing the election petition, Justice Vishal Dhagat granted a month's time to the petitioner to file the written objection, Srivastava said. While the time limit to reply to the election petition notice was 90 days, Thakur had filed it beyond this period in December, said Dixit's counsel Arvind Srivastava.
