A day after announcing that Justice NM Kasliwal has rejected objections against the eligibility of Union Minister CP Joshi to stand for RCA polls, election officer Bihari Lal Gupta on Saturday indicated that a final decision might not have taken in the case.

The ad-hoc committee of RCA had objected that election procedure adopted for Joshi's election as Rajasamand District Association treasurer, which would have made him eligible for December 7 polls, was against provisions of Sports Act, constitutions of RCA and the Rajasamand unit itself.

Gupta yesterday told reporters that the objections of the ad-hoc committee were "rejected" by election observer Justice Kasliwal which meant that Joshi can stand for RCA polls, scheduled for December 7.

But today, the copy of the decision was not given to the media and Gupta said it was yet to be signed Justice Kasliwal.

"The order has not been signed by Justice Kasliwal yet. I can't comment on whether there will be any changes. But unless it is duly signed corrections can't be ruled out," Gupta said.

He said there would be a hearing on Monday on some objections raised by RCA ad-hoc committee and other state units on other issues.

"There were other objections too and the ad-hoc committee had filed an application to review the decision of granting the permission to vote to 126 new members. The hearing on this issue is slated for Monday and we shall also announce verdict on all the objections," said Gupta.
