HC Division bench refused to stay BJP-Congress merger; case back to Single bench

  • | Friday | 7th August, 2020

Justice Goyal is set to hear the matter on August 11.

A division bench of Rajasthan High Court on Thursday disposed of appeals filed by the BSP and BJP legislator Madan Dilawar, who had sought a stay on the merger of six BSP MLAs with the Congress last year.

In its order, the division bench of Chief Justice Indrajit Mahanty and Justice Prakash Gupta said that the court is “confident” that the single-judge bench of Justice Mahendar Kumar Goyal will dispose of the petitions filed by the appellants the same day “in accordance with the law and without…being prejudiced by any directions/observations issued by us”.

Justice Goyal is set to hear the matter on August 11.

In separate appeals filed on Tuesday, the BSP and Dilawar had challenged Justice Goyal’s July 30 order, which had refused to stay the merger. The court had issued notices to the Speaker and the six legislators, directing them to reply by August 11.
