The Supreme Court today dismissed a petition challenging the dissolution of the Telangana Assembly, and asked the petitioner to approach the High Court on the issue.
A person named Komireddy Ramachandar from Hyderabad had filed a petition in the Supreme Court alleging that the TRS government had dissolved the Telangana Assembly without letting it complete the five years tenure given by the people, and that that violated the Constitution. Ramachandar urged the court to take up the petition for trial urgently as arrangements were going on speedily for elections in the state.
After examining the petition, a Supreme Court bench comprising Justice A K Sikri dismissed it saying that was not proper for the petitioner to approach the Supreme Court over the issue instead of the High Court. The apex court stated that the petitions on the abolition of the Assembly, early elections and the voter list anamolies had all been diverted to the High Court.
The court also stated that it was up to the wisdom of petitioner whether to file the petition in the High Court or not.
