NCP spokesman misses deadline for Assembly polls nomination

In an irony of sorts, the nomination form of Ankush Kakde from the NCP, which has the clock as its election symbol, got rejected after he could not attach an important form to his election affidavit in time.

NCP spokesperson and close confidant of party chief Sharad Pawar, Kakde filed his AB form for nomination from Kasaba Assembly constituency yesterday but missed on tagging it with the mandatory election affidavit to complete the formalities.

He then rushed to get the affidavit done. By the time Kakde’s affidavit arrived and his lawyers frantically stamped it with his signature, the election office door was locked with the expiry of 3 pm deadline for filing of nomination papers.
