Delhi HC Rejects Plea on Cancellation of AAP Registration

New Delhi, March 19: Delhi High Court on Thursday dismissed the plea seeking cancellation of the registration of Aam Admi Party (AAP) with the Election Commission on the ground that it used forged documents.

The division bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice R S Endlaw rejected the plea that also sought for an inquiry into the alleged irregularities during registration of the AAP by the poll panel.

The judgment came on the plea of Hans Raj Jain, who had sought the cancellation alleging that the "registration of AAP was allowed (by the ECI) in a hurried manner on the basis of false and fabricated documents without making any proper enquiries".

Jain had said there were discrepancies in residential addresses given by some AAP members in their affidavits when compared to the addresses given in their voter identity cards or income tax returns.

The plea said the AAP submitted on December 3, 2012, a request for registration of the party on its letter pad with the national emblem, which was unconstitutional and illegal.
