Lucknow: An application moved by Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi to get a domicile certificate from Amethi, the parliamentary seat he represents, has been turned down, officials said Thursday.
The application to obtain a 'temporary residential certificate' was denied by the sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) based on a report submitted by the tehsildar, a revenue official.
Officials told IANS that Congress leader Rajendra Singh had applied for the certificate, with the Sanjay Gandhi Guest House in Munshiganj area being shown as the temporary address of the Gandhi scion.
SDM R.D. Ram had asked the tehsildar to look into it.
