Jaipur: The hearing in the Rajasthan High Court has been deferred till August 13 in connection with the merger of 6 BSP MLAs into Congress. Justice Mahendra Kumar Goyal said that the next hearing is now going to be on August 13. The petition filed by BJP MLA Madan Dilawar and BSP General Secretary Satish Mishra could not be completed on Tuesday. The petition argues that BSP MLAs will not be allowed to participate in the Legislative Assembly's investigation until the final decision of the court. Dilawar has also demanded in the Supreme Court. And the hearing of this case has been postponed till August 13.
Dilawar demands that the order was given by the speaker on September 18, 2019, for the approval of BSP MLAs to join Congress, should be banned. The BSP itself has also challenged this case. It demands that the application be transferred from the High Court to the Supreme Court. All 6 MLAs should not vote in favour of any party in the floor test of the assembly. In the midst of the hearing on Monday, State Congress Committee President Govind Singh Dotasara and Chief advisor Mahesh Joshi have pleaded for making them parties, but the High Court has refused to accept it.
In the application submitted by the Congress to lawyers Varun Chopra and Shaswat Purohit in the High Court, it was told that the state assembly speaker has accepted the proposal for the merger on 18 September 2019. On the other hand, in the petition filed on behalf of Advocate Hemant Nahata, these MLAs are urging them not to enter the assembly premises, where this fact has also been accepted. During this time, in the merger of BSP MLAs with Congress, another petition has been filed in the High Court. In a petition filed by Advocate Hemant Nahata, he has requested to ban these MLAs from giving entry in the assembly premises. The petition has requested to quash the merger and disqualify the MLAs along with the cancellation of the order of approval given by the Speaker.
