TMC leader’s election petition rejected over “Bangladesh citizenship”

The Calcutta High Court has rejected the election petition of West Bengal’s Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Alorani Sarkar, who lost last year’s assembly poll from Bangaon Dakshin constituency on the grounds that she has dual citizenship of Bangladesh and India and cannot declare herself as “Indian”, as the law of the country does not allow it.
