Right to Reject welcomed


Jamshedpur : Aditypur Advocates Association has welcomed the decision od Supreme Court to implement Right to Reject. “This is a wonderful judgment.

This will certainly force the political parties to field clean candidates in election,” said Narendra Prasad during a meeting of the association.

In a landmark judgment, the apex court, on Friday, directed the election commission of India to give the electorate “none of the above” (NOTA) provision, as in to reject all candidates in a constituency.

As per the court order, the commission should start the exercise with the assembly elections scheduled this year.
