Setback for Cong: Hardik Patel won't be able to contest LS polls

Mar 29, 2019 16:44 IST

Patidar leader Hardik Patel who was all set to fight the Lok Sabha polls on a Congress ticket will not be able to contest. The Gujarat High court has rejected Patel's plea seeking a stay on his conviction in a rioting case of 2015. Under Representation of the People Act, 1951, a person sentenced to a jail term of 2 years or above is barred from contesting polls.
