JAMMU: Alleging violation of rules and lodging strong protest, three members of Jammu Central Mahajan Sabha (JCMS) on Saturday refrained themselves from contesting election for the post of President.Briefing media persons here today, Sham Langer said that he along with Ram Langer and Jugal Mahajan are refrained from election for the post of President, alleging serious illegality in holding the election contrary to the spirit of the provisions of the Constitution.“The Election Commissioner issued Election notification dated February 18, 2020 for holding election to the post of President, Jammu Central Mahajan Sabha (Regd.). Since I was interested in serving the Jammu Central Mahajan Sabha as President, therefore, I filed my nomination papers for contesting the election for the post of President in Feb. 2020 itself. However, the election could not be held due to the COVID 19 Pandemic and frequent lockdowns,” he said.“It is strange and surprising that the notification dated 18th Feb. 2020 with the passage of one year has lost its significance and the Election Commissioner was required to issue a fresh notification for holding election to the post of President. Instead of issuing fresh notification, the Election Commissioner proceeded to hold election in reference to notification dated 18th Feb. 2020 which is not legally permissible. After coming to know that Romesh Chander Gupta, President is again in the fray for contesting the election for the post of President, it seemed to be an utter violation and contravention of the Constitution of the Sabha,” Sham said.Langer said “It seems that the elections are being held in connivance with Romesh Chander Gupta by throwing to winds all the provisions of the Constitution of Sabha.”“Because of the serious illegality in holding the election contrary to the spirit of the provisions of the Constitution, I am not participating in the election nor contesting the same for the post of President,” he said.
