Justice S K Misra turned down the plea of Gajanand, whose nomination was rejected by the Returning Officer in New Delhi, due to possessing Schedule Cast certificate of another state Rajasthan.
    
Citing the Supreme Court judgement, Justice Misra said that rejection and acceptance of the process of the nomination is decided by the Election Commission, so it cannot interfere in the decision.
    
Gajanand had filed nomination on November 16 from Bawana constituency here, but his application was rejected saying he should file a caste certificate issued by Delhi government.

The Delhi government had declined a new caste certificate to Gajanand, saying they cannot issue new documents as he already has a valid caste certificate issued by the government of Rajasthan.
    
Aggrieved with Delhi government's response, Gajanand had moved the Delhi High Court. AAP has already fielded Manoj from Bawana instead of him.
