The All Indian Mahila Empowerment Party (MEP) has alleged that five of their candidates were denied filing nominations on Tuesday, ending their prospects of entering the political fray.
Party President Dr Nowhera Shaikh told Nasheman.in, that her candidates were denied entry into the nomination centres for hours, making them unable to file their nominations on time.
Tuesday was the last day of filing of nominations.
Dr Nowhera Shaikh alleged that there is a conspiracy to disrupt MEP’s political prospects from other political parties since MEP is a strong contender to win the upcoming Karnataka assembly elections.
Dr Shaikh said that she has raised a complaint with the Election Commission in this regards.
The candidates, who were denied nominations were: Asifa Khanum from Kanakpura, Nazia Shivapur from Hukkeri, A S Chandrashekhar from Tumkur, Veeresh from Sira and SA Raheem from Malur.
