AHMEDABAD: She owns Rs 15 lakh worth of gold, a flat in Naroda and drives a Rs 10 lakh SUV, but on Monday, the nomination of Krina Patel, the Congress candidate from the Singarva seat for the Ahmedabad district panchayat, was rejected as her house in Kanbha village does not have a toilet.
During scrutiny of her form, her rival in the BJP objected to her candidature and submitted that Krina “lied” in her affidavit stating that she had a toilet at her home in Kanbha, from where she filed her nomination.
Komal Patel, the returning officer for Daskroi told TOI, “During scrutiny, a BJP member and their candidate objected saying Krina did not have a toilet at her residence in Kambha.” The SDM said Krina admitted that she did not have toilet. “We asked her to give it in writing, which she did. We then had to reject her nomination,” Patel said.
