Pune : deccan expressCongress corporator Avinash Bagwe had lost his corporator’s post due to an illegal construction following the small cause court’s decision. Now the Bombay High Court has upheld the lower court’s verdict. The HC has given him six weeks to appeal in the Supreme Court against its decision.

Avinash was elected from Ward No 19 (Lohiyanagar) in the civic polls 2017. His rival in the election, Adv. Bhupendra Shedge, had claimed that Bagwe had not revealed the illegal construction in his affidavit submitted to the Election Commission.

However, the returning officer had rejected his objection. Adv Shedge had appealed against this decision in the small cause court. He had furnished proof of the illegal construction to the court. The court had cancelled Bagwe’s corporator’s post. The HC has now retained this decision.

Reacting to the HC verdict, Bagwe said, “I respect the court’s decision. However, the court stayed its decision for six weeks. Though the corporator’s post has been cancelled for the remaining term, I am going to appeal against it in the Supreme Court. I am confident that justice will be done.”
