SC sets aside HC verdict cancelling caste certificate of Amravati MP Navneet Rana

Date:

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday restored the caste certificate of Amravati MP and BJP leader Navneet Kaur Rana by setting aside the 2021 Bombay High Court verdict.

The order came on the last day of filing nomination for the Amravati Lok Sabha seat in Maharashtra from where Rana has been fielded as the BJP candidate.

On June 8, 2021, the high court had said the ‘mochi’ caste certificate was obtained fraudulently using fabricated documents by Rana. It had also imposed a fine of Rs 2 lakh on the Amravati MP, saying the records indicated that she belonged to the ‘Sikh-Chamar’ caste.

Rana, who had won the reserved Amravati parliamentary seat in Maharashtra as an independent candidate in 2019, has recently joined BJP and is all set to contest from the same constituency.She was backed by the NCP in 2019.
