High Court issues notice to BJP MP Hans Raj Hans over false declaration in election affidavit

The petitioner, Rajesh Lilothia, who contested against him on Congress ticket, alleged that the North-West Delhi lawmaker had made false declarations about his education & his wife’s income, showing Rs 2.50 crore liability on her.

The petition said, in an affidavit in 2009, Hans disclosed his highest educational qualification as ‘PREP’ from DAV College, Jalandhar which was completed in 1981, but in his affidavit filed on April 23 this year he disclosed his highest qualification as ‘Matric’ from Government Senior Secondary School, Dhaliwal, Jalandhar completed in 1978.

There was no mention of the ‘PREP’ from DAV College, Jalandhar, in the latest affidavit, the petitioner said.

Hearing on the petition filed through advocates Vikram Dua & Sunil Kumar, Justice Jayant Nath also issued directions to the Election Commission to preserve his records & posted the matter for September 18.
