Congress candidate for Bhilwara parliament constituency Ashok Chandana is facing criminal cases in various districts, as per his affidavit filed with the nomination papers to the returning officer, Bhilwara.

He is presently on bail since 2007 in a case relating to the issuance of a pistol licence in his name on fake papers, filed in Sriganganagar.

A marble and granite businessman with an MBA degree, Chandana, 29, was elected Rajasthan Youth Congress president in March 2013 and Congress legislator from Hindauli in December 2013.

He won Hindauli seat defeating BJP candidate Mahi Pat Singh by 18,453 votes. He came to light first in 2007 as a beneficiary in the infamous Ganga Nagar illegal gun licence scandal.

Chandana, who belongs to Bundi district, allegedly got a pistol licence issued in his name on a fake address in Sriganganagar.
His father, Dev Lal Gurjar, is a notorious criminal.

His mother, Anita Gurjar, and two other members of his family also got gun licences allegedly by submitting fake documents. His father, who was in jail under Defence of India Rule, got the licence by showing himself as a resident of Ferozpur in Punjab.

In the seven-year-old illegal licences scandal, four RAS official, then posted in Ganganagar, were suspended. Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) is yet to complete its probe in the multi-crore scandal. These officials allegedly issued the licences for gratification.
