Petition against DDC official
Rajbiraj, Aug 7 - A writ petition has been filed at Rajbiraj Appellate Court, demanding imprisonment and fine for newly nominated vice-chairman of Saptari District Development Committee (DDC), Ganga Prasad Yadav, in accordance with different judgments of Saptari District Court in relation to different criminal cases.
According to the district court, Yadav has been slapped 57 days imprisonment and fined Rs 1967 in criminal cases.
Tej Narayan Sipaliya Yadav, a local, filed the writ petition Sunday.The writ petitioner has urged the court to pass an interim order, fearing that the convict would flee Rajbiraj on knowing of the fresh case against him.
He has sought from the court an order to the district court to implement its judgments in Yadav's case, so as to prevent him from taking oath of office and secrecy. Interestingly, the same judge of the same district court that slapped imprisonment and fine against him will be administering the oath.
He has further argued that a person convicted in a criminal case who has not cleared his punishments, is ineligible to hold a public post like that of a vice-chairman of the DDC.
The government had nominated Yadav as the vice-chairman last week.
