Public interest litigation related to BSP MLAs will be heard on this day

Jaipur: The hearing on the PIL filed in the Rajasthan High Court regarding the merger of 6 BSP MLAs into the Congress was adjourned for one week. Justice Sabina and Justice C.K. Songara have fixed the date of September 2 for hearing the petition. In this PIL filed on behalf of Advocate Hemant Nahata, he is seeking to restore the status of the parties allowed for the Gazette Notification which was started on December 12, 2018, after the Assembly elections. Also, to ban the entry of all 6 MLAs of the BSP to the assembly premises, to prevent the merger of MLAs with Congress, to pass the order of the Speaker of September 18, 2019, disqualifying the MLAs from membership of the Legislative Assembly. All the documents related to the merger are being declared invalid.

In the case of merger of BSP MLAs with Congress, Justice Mahendra Goyal's single bench had pronounced its decision. On the petition of BSP and BJP MLA Madan Dilawar, the High Court had heard in its decision that the Speaker should hear the case. The court had said that the Speaker should hear and dispose of the BSP and Dilawar legislators, including cancelling the merger and declaring the MLAs invalid, in 3 months.

Significantly, this entire case is related to the 6 MLAs who reached the assembly after winning the BSP symbol in the last assembly elections, who later went to the Congress party. These MLAs presented an application to the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, Dr CP Joshi, last year and requested to approve the merger with the Congress. On this, the assembly speaker accepted their application and the merger had been approved. BSP and Madan Dilawar also challenged the merger as false and challenged it in the High Court.
