MLAs’ resignations: HC issues notice to Speaker Joshi, Vidhan Sabha Secy
Jaipur: The Rajasthan High Court on Tuesday issued notices to Assembly Speaker Dr CP Joshi and the Vidhan Sabha Secretary in connection with the resignations of 91 Congress MLAs. The resignations have been pending with Joshi for over two months. Senior advocate Hemant Nahta, the counsel for Deputy LoP Rajendra Rathore who filed a PIL in the HC, said a bench of Justices Manindra Mohan Shrivastava and Vinod Kumar Bharwani issued notices and listed the matter after three weeks. Rathore argued the case himself. “According to me, this is the first case where a sitting MLA has argued a PIL himself,” Nahta said. The PIL seeks judicial intervention in the matter and a direction to the Speaker to take a decision on the resignations within seven working days. “The strength in the Assembly has come down to 109 after 91 MLAs have resigned. What is the status of this government then?,” said Rathore.
