Mother of 3, Rakhi Gupta removed from Chhapra Mayor post for submitting false affidavit
The recently-elected Mayor of Chapra, Rakhi Gupta, has been disqualified by Bihar‘s State Election Commission on the basis of wrongful declaration in the affidavit.
Subsequently, Rakhi Gupta approached the Patna High Court against the decision.
As per her affidavit, she had mentioned she had two children. When the SEC verified her other documents, it found she had three children.
Rakhi Gupta had recently won the mayoral election, defeating her nearest rival, Sunita Gupta. Sunita Gupta, who was the former Mayor of Chapra, filed a complaint before the SEC demanding the cancellation of the result.
After hearing both sides, the SEC disqualified Rakhi Gupta.
