SC adjourns hearing on Chawlas dismissal petition till July 24

The Supreme Court on Wednesday adjourned the hearing on the petition filed by BJP leader Jaswant Singh regarding removal of Election Commissioner Navin Chawla till July 24.

New Delhi, May 10 : The Supreme Court on Wednesday adjourned the hearing on the petition filed by BJP leader Jaswant Singh regarding removal of Election Commissioner Navin Chawla till July 24.

A two-member bench of the apex court comprising Justice Ashok Bhan and Justice Dalveer Bhandari directed the parties to file a written submission within a week.

Chawla is alleged to have received money from local area development funds of Congress MPs (MPLAD fund ) to run his two charitable trusts in Jaipur.

Chawla had denied having received an offer of donations from the then Union Labour Minister's MPLAD fund and said that it was rejected by the Municipal Commissioner of Delhi (MCD) because it did not come from the area MP. He has already been given a clean chit by the Centre.

Earlier, the BJP had urged President A P J Abdul Kalam to fulfil his constitutional responsibility by taking a decision on the removal of Chawla.

The NDA has been demanding Chawla's removal for his alleged proximity to the Congress Party, including his role during the emergency and alleged funding received by his NGO.

The controversy broke out after a private news channel claimed that the trusts run by Chawla, who was appointed an Election Commissioner in May last year, and his wife Rupika had received large funds to the tune of Rs 85 lakhs from Congress MPs.
