Pune, 4th December 2021: After the Pune small causes court, now the Bombay High Court has also cancelled the membership of Congress corporator Avinash Ramesh Bagwe for furnishing wrong information in his affidavit and nomination form during the 2017 Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) elections.

Based on a petition filed by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) leader Bhupendra Shedge, the Pune court had disqualified Bagwe this year. After that Bagwe had challenged the order in the High Court.

Shedge had contested unsuccessfully against Bagwe from ward 19a (Lohiyanagar-Kasewadi). Shedge had filed a complaint with election officials also but they did not consider his complaint.

In 2017, Shedge filed an election petition before the small causes court which gave the verdict on June 29 this year and cancelled the membership of Bagwe.

Bagwe said that he will file a petition in the Supreme Court against the High Court judgement to get justice.
