SC refuses to give specific date for hearing of disqualified MLAs’ plea


Daijiworld Media Network - New Delhi 

New Delhi, Sep 12: The Supreme Court, on Thursday, September 12, refused to give a specific date to hear the petitions filed by Karnataka’s disqualified MLAs, against the then Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar’s order. 

The hearing which was once listed on September 11 got deleted. When senior advocates Rakesh Dwivedi, V Giri and Anupam Lal Das sought a hearing, a bench of Justices N V Ramana, Mohan M Shantanagoudar and Ajay Rastogi questioned, “What is the urgency?” 

Without giving a specific date, they said the matter will come up in due course.

The 17 MLAs who were disqualified had filed writ petitions against the Speaker’s orders passed on July 28. 

Disqualified MLAs Pratap Gouda Patil, BC Patil, A S Hebbar, S T Somashekar, B A Basavaraja and Muniratna in their joint petition contended that the Speaker’s orders was “Wholly illegal, arbitrary and malafide.” 

Meanwhile, Roshan Baig, Anand Singh, MTB Nagaraj, Dr K Sudhakar, Shrimanth B Patil and R Shankar urged the court to nullify the order passed by the Speaker. 

The rebellion of the disqualified MLAs had resulted in the fall of JD(S)-Congress coalition in the state. The Speaker in his order termed the 17 MLAs as ineligible to be legislators again for the term of the 15th Karnataka Legislative Assembly.

    Supreme court must delay the hearing so that these disqualified MLA's must wait for couple of years for their SINS to cleanse!!! MLA's made mockery of the Legislative assembly just for their greed with out any shame and also fooled the voters of their constituency. People elected them to serve but these guys are after money, power and changed parties and cheated VOTERS!!! PEOPLE must show the way out in the future elections...

    They look like traitors any way. People who voted them should take them to task. In their life time, they should not be elected for any post, not even municipal Councillors.
