PM�s RS poll papers found valid

By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, May 21 � The nomination papers of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, a Congress Rajya Sabha candidate from Assam, were found valid today after scrutiny even as he filed a fresh affidavit correcting his age from 82 years to 80, reports PTI.

The Prime Minister�s four sets of nomination papers endorsed by 40 MLAs submitted under oath before the Returning Officer were found in order, Assembly sources said.

Singh filed a fresh affidavit two days ago correcting his age from 82 to 80 years in the nomination papers for the May 30 elections, they said. Under the rules, there was time until yesterday for making corrections in the nomination papers, the sources said.

The Prime Minister had filed his nomination papers on May 15 before the Assembly Principal Secretary G P Das, who is also the Returning Officer for the Rajya Sabha polls.

The nomination papers of Congress candidate Santiuse Kujur and AIUDF contestant Aminul Islam for the second RS seat from the State were also found valid after scrutiny, they said.

The nomination papers of independent candidate K Padmanarayan were found invalid as he had failed to provide the names of MLA proposers, the sources added.

May 23 is the last date for withdrawal of candidature for the two seats, for which elections are being held.
