Civil Misc. No.1921 -CII of 2006

Application allowed, date in appeal is preponed from 3.3.2006 to today.

FAO No.4153 of 2005

Heard.

It is apparent from the records that the appellant has secured 264 votes in election to the post of Sarpanch, whereas the respondent got 274 votes and was declared elected. Election was challenged mainly on the ground of bungling at the time of counting of votes. It has not been brought on record that any application was moved immediately after counting, to the Presiding Officer, for re-counting. Even after declaration of result, no application was moved to the higher authorities stating allegations, which were taken in the election petition. The Tribunal below has held that the petitioner has failed to make out any case for re-counting of votes. Order passed is perfectly justified. No case is made out for interference.

Dismissed.

January 30, 2006 ( Jasbir Singh )
