In Chhattisgarh, scrutiny of nominations for byelection to Marwahi assembly constituency took place yesterday. After the scrutiny, 6 nomination papers were rejected and now 13 candidates have been left in the fray. Total 19 candidates had filed their nominations. Tomorrow is the last day for withdrawal of nominations.

Regional Party Janata Congress Chhattisgarh- J President Amit Jogi’s nomination papers to contest by-election from the reserved Marwahi constituency of Chhattisgarh has been rejected after the State high level caste scrutiny committee cancelled his tribal caste certificate. Earlier, nomination papers of Amit Jogi’s wife Richa Jogi have also been rejected during scrutiny as tribal caste certificate was suspended by the Mungeli District Caste Scrutiny Committee on a complaint that questioned her tribal status. 

With the rejection of nomination papers of both Janata Congress leaders, for the first time in 20 years a contest for tribal Marwahi seat will be without a member from the Jogi family. By-election for the Marwahi seat was necessitated following the death of Chhattisgarh’s first chief minister Ajit Jogi in May this year. The ruling Congress has fielded a medical practitioner Dr K K Dhurv while opposition BJP has also fielded a renowned surgeon Dr Gambhir Singh for this by-election.
