New Delhi: The Election Commission has come to the conclusion that there is nothing wrong with Amit Shah's nomination, as alleged. This comes after Congress candidate for Gandhinagar, CJ Chavda, objected Amit Shah’s nomination form on Friday during the scrutiny of nomination forms.

The Congress too moved the Election Commission seeking disqualification of the BJP president Amit Shah's nomination paper alleging that he concealed facts. Shah is fighting the Lok Sabha elections from Gandhinagar constituency in Gujarat. 

Moreover, the Congress party even called it a "false affidavit"

“First, with regard to a plot in Gandhinagar and second, with regard to loans taken from a commercial bank by his son for which he is the guarantor,” the Congress alleged in its complaint to the EC, reported news agency ANI.

The complaint further read, “The properties were mortgaged in lieu of a large and substantial loan of Rs 25 crore extended by the bank to his son’s company. It is, therefore, a fact that the properties are mortgaged to Kalupur Commercial Cooperative Bank and hence constitute a liability that should have been declared”.

However, after the BJP presented requisite documents, district election officer SK Langa approved the form of the BJP president. 

The Times of India quoted Langa to be saying, “The Congress candidate had objected to certain information related to mortgage loan provided by the BJP candidate. “However, the representatives of the BJP furnished relevant documents which were sufficient according to rules. So I have approved the form.”
