Congress rebel Shilpi Arora, who is fighting as an independent candidate from Kichcha seat against Chief Minister Harish Rawat, on Monday accused him of furnishing false information in his nomination papers.

Arora, who filed a complaint with the Election Commission, accused the chief minister of providing false income details in his papers and claimed that he was possessing two PAN cards.

She also claimed that his signature appeared to be different from the one used during his 2014 by poll nomination from Dharchula.

The rebel leader demanded that his nomination be cancelled.

She registered her complaint along with BJP candidate Rajesh Shukla but EC officer Naresh Chandra Durgapal, after hearing both parties, dismissed it.

Rawat’s advocate Charan Singh termed the allegations false and said they were intended to gain publicity.
