Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Yogendra Yadav-led Swaraj today moved the High against the state commission's denial of its plea for a common symbol for the upcoming MCD polls in the city.

Appearing for the party, senior advocate Nigam mentioned the matter before a bench of justices Badar Durrez Ahmed and V K Rao for an urgent hearing.



The bench allowed the matter to be listed for hearing tomorrow before the appropriate

The state commission today announced that the municipal polls would be held on April 22 in the national capital.

Swaraj was floated by Yadav and Prasant Bhushan, who were expelled from after they questioned Kejriwal's leadership.

Nigam said the poll panel denied their request for a symbol on March 7 despite a provision in the rules to provide a symbol to a registered but unrecognised political party like Swaraj which is set to make its debut in the upcoming MCD polls.

The lawyer argued that under the Symbols (Reservation and Allotment) (Amendment) Order the Commission of itself allows newly registered political parties to have a common symbol for all their candidates for contesting their first

The party has claimed that states like Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, West Bengal, Kerala, Sikkim and Tripura follow the rule made by the Commission of (ECI).

Swaraj India, in its plea, has blamed the government for the denial of symbol to it citing the notification of Symbols (Reservation and Allotment) Order 2016 which allegedly bars candidates of new parties from having a common symbol.
