"He has also not mentioned serious allegations in his affidavit", Gujarat BJP president Jitu Vaghani said.

Adding a new twist to the electoral contest for the four Rajya Sabha seats in Gujarat, the BJP on Tuesday questioned the "no dues certificates" issued to Congress candidate Naran Rathwa by the Lok Sabha Secretariat, alleging that the certificates issued to him may have been forged.

The BJP has urged the Election Commission to intervene immediately and maintained that that the nomination of Congress leader Naranbhai Rathwa for the Rajya Sabha elections in Gujarat be declared null and void or quashed because of submission of "fake" documents and concealing other vital facts.

The ruling party nominated 18 candidates including general secretary and party spokesperson Saroj Pandey from Chhattisgarh, Anil Jain from Uttar Pradesh, and former Maharashtra chief minister Narayan Rane, who recently quit the Congress to join the BJP. Amid a last-minute confusion, Congress leader P K Valera also filed nomination as an Independent.

According to sources, Mulanis nomination is likely to be rejected during the scrutiny of forms tomorrow as he has not taken the mandatory support of 10 MLAs, which is required as per norms.
