Controversy raised in this case is squarely covered by the decision of Larger
Bench in the case of Smt. Sameera Bano Vs.
State of Raj. & Ors, D.B. Special Appeal (W)
No.236/06, decided on 2.4.2007 wherein it was held as under:-
"that a pre-election disqualification can be adjudicated only in an election petition before the District Judge under Section 43 of the Act read with rule 80 of the Election Rules and cannot be adjudicated by the authority under rule 23 of the Rules."
