Delhi HC dismisses Swaraj India plea for common symbol

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today dismissed the plea of Swaraj India for a common symbol in the April 23 MCD polls.

The High Court dismissed the plea of the party, saying since the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) would now carry photographs of candidates and it would not be put to any disadvantage if there was no common symbol.

Justice Hima Kohli said as the plea was filed after several steps in the electoral process had started, it was "very late in the day for the court to interfere".
