The Supreme Court has dismissed the petition filed by Ex- BSF Jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav's petition challenging the election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Varanasi constituency in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. CJI SA Bobde had said This is an important case that revolves around the unique office of the Prime Minister. We cannot keep it pending indefinitely," The special leave petition is filed challenging the judgment passed by the Allahabad High Court in December 2019 dismissing Tej Bahadur's election petition on the ground of lack of locus standi. Tej Bahadur had challenged the rejection of his nomination as Samajwadi Party (SP) candidate from Varanasi constituency for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Bahadur had initially filed his nomination as an independent candidate but later altered it to enter his nomination as an SP candidate. His nomination papers were reportedly rejected by the returning officer, citing his failure to submit a certificate that he was not sacked from BSF for either corruption or disloyalty. Dismissal on the grounds of corruption or disloyalty attracts a ban on contesting elections. Bahadur challenged this rejection, contending that such a decision was taken to facilitate an easy victory for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
