Prayagraj: The Allahabad High Court has dismissed the petition filed seeking cancellation of the election of former Rampur MP and Samajwadi Party leader Mohammad Azam Khan. This petition was filed by famous actress Jaya Prada Nahata. A single bench of Justice SD Singh has disposed of all the pending applications in this case.
In fact, no advocate appeared in the court to represent Jaya Prada on this election petition. On the other hand, advocate NK Pandey of Mohammad Azam Khan told the court that his client has resigned from the membership of the Lok Sabha, which has also been accepted. Therefore the election petition has become meaningless. At the same time, due to non-appearance of the advocate in the hearing of the petition, the court has dismissed the petition.
