Congress today demanded the rejection of nomination of Aam Aadmi Party's candidate for Rajya Sabha, Narayan Dass Gupta, on the grounds that his nomination violates the Article 102 of the Constitution of India as he is holding an office of profit.
While scrutinising the nominations that were filed on Thursday, the RO, Central Delhi District Magistrate Nidhi Srivastava, issued a notice to Mr. Gupta, acting on a complaint by Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken.
