Col Sihag provided a copy of the petition to the media persons and demanded that elections of Sirsa also be set aside and fresh free and fair elections be conducted.
The HESL, which is a registered society with its headquarters in Rohtak, has a membership of around 1,30,000 retired defence personnel. It had recently conducted elections to its district units in Gurgaon, Jhajjar, Mewat, Fatehabad, Rewari and Sirsa. The polls at several of these districts have been declared null and void.
The registrar, after considering the petitions filed by aggrieved ex-servicemen, reportedly found irregularities on part of the election officer appointed by the HESL. Several objections were also raised against the eligibility of candidates. It was alleged by the dissidents that unfair methods were used to elect persons already selected unofficially by the HESL headquarters.
