SC rejects challenging petition against Sachin's nomination in RS
The Supreme Court of India on Monday quashed a petition against eminent cricket star Sachin Tendulkar seeking to prevent him from taking oath as a member of Rajya Sabha.
Tendulkar's name was proposed by Central government along with actress Rekha and industrialist Anu Aga on April 26 for appointing them as members of the upper house of Parliament.
An apex court bench headed by Justice Deepak Verma rejected the petition of one Ram Gopal Singh Sisodia contending that Tendulkar's nomination to the upper house of the Indian constitution was contrary to the provisions of the constitution.
The court asked the petitioner to move the appropriate high court to raise his contention.
The petitioner contended that the Article 80(3) of the constitution provides for nomination of eminent people from the field of literature, science, art and social services. He contended that there is no provision for the nomination of an individual to the Rajya Sabha from the sports category.
Tendulkar was scheduled to take oath on Wednesday as a member of Rajya Sabha. He had also given the honorary rank of group captain in the Indian Air Force in 2010.
