Rajasthan High Court makes Modi Government as ‘party’ in MLA disqualification case

It is a big day for the rebel MLAs in Rajasthan. Giving a big relief to the Sachin Pilot camp, the Rajasthan High Court has made Central Government as a party against the Congress in Sachin Pilot and other MLAs disqualification case. Delivering its verdict on the petition filed by Sachin Pilot to make the centre as one of the parties, the High Court has approved the request.

With this, now Sachin Pilot gets Additional Solicitor General to present his case before the court. Senior lawyers Harish Salve and Mukul Rohatgi will present the case via video conferencing.

On Friday, the dissident Congress MLAs led by Pilot challenged their disqualification notices through a writ petition which was taken up by a bench of Rajasthan High Court, comprising Chief Justice Indrajit Mahanty and Justice Prakash Gupta, and arguments were held.

The Rajasthan Assembly Speaker had served the notice to MLAs after the Congress Party complained to the speaker that the legislators had defied a whip to attend two Congress Legislature Party meetings on July 13 and 14 last week. The Pilot camp, however, argued that a party whip applies only when the assembly is in session.
