Chief Justice DY Chandrachud of the Supreme Court delivered harsh remarks on Monday during the hearing of appeals against Chandigarh’s mayor election. The Chief Justice chastised the Returning Officer, stating that it was clear he had tampered with the voting materials. Is this the manner in which he handles the elections? This is democracy made fun of. Democracy is being murdered by this. We’re horrified. It is time to prosecute this man. “Is this how the returning officer acts?” he inquired.

After the returning officer ruled that eight votes—all of which were cast for the AAP—were invalid, the BJP was elected mayor. The SC election was contested by the AAP.

The Registrar General of the Punjab and Haryana High Court was directed by the SC to preserve all election-related records, including ballots, videos, and other materials. The subsequent Chandigarh Corporation meeting is to be postponed till the next hearing date, as directed by the highest court. 

Following Manoj Sonkar, the BJP’s candidate, receiving 16 out of 35 votes, the party was declared the winner of the Chandigarh mayoralty last Tuesday. Only twelve votes were received by Kuldeep Singh, the AAP and Congress candidate for mayor, and eight votes were deemed illegal. Following the invalidation of eight ballots, the AAP accused foul play.

For the first time in the Chandigarh mayoral elections, according to AAP MP Raghav Chadha, eight of the thirty-five votes were ruled to be void. He added that out of the 20 votes required, the Congress and AAP partnership received 12, with 8 of those votes being ruled void. “Not a single vote of the BJP was declared invalid,” he stated.
