SC dismisses plea against UP CM Yogi Adityanath

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today, January 23, dismissed a plea seeking direction for registering of a case against State Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for an alleged objectionable conversation during an election campaign in Rajasthan’s Alwar in 2018.

A Bench of Justices comprising BR Gavai and Vikram Nath said it was not inclined to interfere in the matter.“Such litigations are only for page first of newspapers... Dismissed,” the Bench said.

The petitioner had moved the Apex court against an order of the Allahabad High Court which had dismissed his plea and imposed a cost of Rs 5,000 (fifty thousand) on him.

The petition was filed by Naval Kishor Sharma of Mau district.

As per to the petitioner, the CM Yogi Adityanath on November 23, 2018, in an election speech in Alwar, hurt his religious sentiments. Prior to moving to the apex court, the petitioner had filed a complaint against the speech before the district court of Mau, which was rejected.

He had then filed a revision petition before the honourable higher court, which also was dismissed on the ground of territorial jurisdiction.
