C. Narayanswamy v et al C.K. Jaffar Shariff et al

The appellants challenged the election of the respondent primarily on the grounds (i) that the respondent arranged large-scale mass free-feedings for electors during the election; (ii) that the said respondent incurred expenditure at the election which amounted to a corrupt practice; and (iii) that the declaration of the result of the respondent was in violation of the provisions of the Act in as much as several thousand votes which should not have been counted in favour of the respondent, which materially affected the result of the election of the respondent and as such his election was liable to be declared void.
