Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday demanded cancellation of Union Minister Farooq Abdullah’s candidature, alleging that he had given “misleading” information about his age to the Election Commission.

AAP has filed a complaint to the Returning Officer for Srinagar parliamentary constituency in this regard.

The complaint, filed by chief election agent of the party for the constituency Shahnawaz Sultan, alleges that Mr. Abdullah declared his age as 66 years in an affidavit during the 2008 assembly elections, but has mentioned it as 77 years in an affidavit submitted along with his nomination papers for Lok Sabha elections on April 7 this year.

“It is requested that his (Mr. Abdullah’s) candidature may be cancelled for filing a misleading affidavit,” AAP demanded in its complaint.

Mr. Abdullah, father of Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, is the candidate of the ruling National Conference (NC) - Congress alliance from the constituency.

Mr.Abdullah had grown young in the green pasture of Congress comradery but realised his
age after seeing the pasture growing dry.
