Madan Tanti from Sikandra Assembly constituency had filed his nomination on a Jan Adhikar Party ticket. Electoral officer cum ADM Kumar Sanjay of Sikandra Assembly had canceled his nomination papers due to a mistake in the nomination papers.

Immediately an ambulance arrived from the hospital so that the above could be treated. Here, Madan Tanti’s son Santosh Kumar said that his father Madan Tanti had filed a nomination before Election Officer cum ADM Kumar Sanjay Prasad on 7 October. The party from which his father has nominated is a registered party. For this reason, he provided the signature and related documents of 10 proposers in the nomination papers.
He alleges that BDO Avtulya Kumar Arya, Assistant Electoral Officer cum Khaira, tore all the papers saying that only two proposals are needed. When the nomination papers were scrutinized, his father’s nomination was canceled. He said that the entire matter should be investigated and the Election Commission should take action against the guilty officer.

On the other hand, Madan Tanti’s proponent cum former head Janardan Yadav said that the entire incident was captured by the Assistant Election Officer in the CCTV video which can be seen clearly.
