Bengal Speaker plans to move Supreme Court against high court’s order on Mukul | India News


KOLKATA: Bengal assembly Speaker Biman Banerjee is planning to move the Supreme Court against a recent Calcutta HC order on the Mukul Roy disqualification plea case. The HC had last Tuesday asked Banerjee to decide on the petition to disqualify Roy, under the anti-defection law, by October 7.
Leader of opposition Suvendu Adhikari had filed the petition against Roy, who had switched over from BJP to Trinamool. While the hearing was pending, the speaker appointed Roy the PAC chairman. Banerjee consulted legal opinion following the HC directive and said he was mulling moving the Supreme Court this week.
Sources hinted that some top lawyers were going to represent the speaker as he wanted to point out that the HC was making an attempt to exert its power on the legislature and the HC was overstepping its jurisdiction in issuing directives to the speaker. The HC bench of acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Rajarshi Bhardwaj had said that in case of failure to meet the deadline, it would decide further course of action.
