According to Rangeela, he was “unaware” of the Varanasi district magistrate’s notification that his candidacy was declined due to his “inability to take the oath.

It is now evident that I will not be permitted to run for office from Varanasi. Rangeela wrote on ‘X’ after the incident, saying, The spirit is not broken, but the heart is broken.

His words referred to his previous charges against the election board, in which he claimed that he was denied the right to register his nomination from the Uttar Pradesh seat, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the top candidate. Varanasi will go to the polls in the last phase of elections on June 1. Candidates were allowed until May 14 to file nominations for phase seven seats.

He submitted his nomination for the seat just hours before the deadline expired. Having finished all paperwork, and procedures, and surmounted various obstacles, we’re now poised to be a choice for the people of Varanasi, he stated.

After my nomination was rejected, I extend my gratitude for all your cooperation. I kindly request the media and supporters to refrain from contacting me at this time. I’ll continue to share any updates here on ‘X.’ Frankly, I don’t feel like engaging in conversation for the time being, the comedian commented. -Lok Sabha Elections
