It is pertinent to mention here that the petitioner also asked the presiding officer on the booth to recount the votes in his presence but the said officer instead to recount the votes straight way declared the respondent no. 1 as Sarpanch and also did not obtain the signatures of the petitioner on the result sheet.

4-  That the petitioner being aggrieved with the illegal action of the concerned presiding officer and the illegal declaration of the result for the post of Sarpanch in favour of the respondent no. 1 moved application to the respondent no. 6 i.e. Distt. Election officer and prayed to him for conducting recount of the votes in presence of the petitioner but the respondent no. 5 to 7  in collusion with the respondent no. 1 did not take any action on the application of the petitioner and the petitioner still has firm belief that the respondents no.  5 to 7 did not conduct the election of the post of Sarpanch in a fair and freed manner and the declaration of result in favour of the respondent no. 1 is invalid and in the present circumstances the scrutiny of the entire record of the votes polled in the election of Sarpanch of village ________ on _________ alongwith the recount/computation of votes recorded in favour of each candidate i.e. petitioner and respondent no. 1 to 4  is necessary and the petitioner is liable to be declared as elected after the same and the aforesaid declaration of result is illegal, null and void and is liable to be set aside, hence this petition.

5-  That aforesaid illegal act of the respondents no. 1 and 5 to 7 has prejudiced the result of the election and caused it diverted in favour of the respondent no. 1 and it is deliberate mischief with malafides in order to influence the result of election in favour of the respondent no. 1, which was designed by these persons before hand to procure the desired result in favour of respondent no. 1. Had this mischief not committed the result would have been otherwise and respondent no. 1 would not be declared elected.

6-   That the cause of action has arose in the territorial jurisdiction of this hon'ble court and the village Panchayat is situated and voting has taken place in village ________, within the limits of this hon'ble court, hence this hon'ble court has got jurisdiction to try the decide the present petition.

7-   That the prescribed fee of petition of Rs. 30/- is being paid on the petition.

8-   It is, therefore, prayed that the election result dated 25-11-2022 declaring the respondent no. 1 as elected for Sarpanch of Village ________ is illegal, void and be set aside and the petitioner being highest votes scorer be declared as Sarpanch of village ________. Or any other relief which this hon'ble court deems fit and proper may also be awarded, in the interest of justice. The petition may please be accepted with costs.
