New Delhi, Aug 13: The Congress on Monday met Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) O.P. Rawat and demanded that BJP President Amit Shah’s membership of the upper House be suspended for not disclosing his liabilities in his election affidavit during the Rajya Sabha polls last year. “Our delegation met the Election Commission (EC). Under Representation of People’s Act, 2004, whoever contests an election, he has to disclose his assets and properties,” said Congress leader Kapil Sibal who led a party delegation to the EC. “If there is any liability, he should disclose that as well. Amit Shah mortgaged two of his properties through his son Jay Shah to a cooperative bank in Gujarat which got them a loan of Rs 25 crore. But he did not disclose this in the election affidavit. This is a liability,” he added. (IANS)
