Senior Congress leader and former minister D K Aruna has filed a petition in the Hyderabad High Court stating that the dissolution of the Telangana Assembly was not done as per the Constitution.
She mentioned in her petition that the government didn't give information of the dissolution to even the MLAs, and that it was not proper to dissolve the House without convening it. She alleged that the Chief Minister had dissolved the Assembly only for political gains though it was to continue for five years.
She added that the Cabinet had crossing its limits, and that the Governor too had endorsed the abolition of the House hurriedly.
Meanwhile, another petition was filed in the High Court challenging the election schedule for Telangana. The High Court accepted former MLA Komireddy Ramulu's petition as a lunch motion following the directions of the Supreme Court. For the uninitiated, Komireddy had filed a petition in the Supreme Court on the abrupt dissolution of the Assembly, but the Supreme Court had suggested that he approach the High Court as it had the power to look into the issue.
Interestingly, nearly 200 petitions have been filed on the dissolution of the Assembly and finding fault with the act of the Telangana government. The High Court will take up all the petitions on Wednesday.
