Notably, the case goes back to 2019 when a sacked Border Security Force (BSF) jawan, Tej Bahadur Yadav, wanted to contest against PM Modi from the Varanasi constituency but failed after his documents were rejected by the Election Commission. He then filed a petition against his disqualification in the Supreme Court.
