High Court Notice To Speaker On CLP Merger Case

The Telangana High Court adjourned the hearing in the case of the sensational Congress Legislature Party (CLP) merger into the TRS to June 12.
Hyderabad | 11th June 2019
The Telangana High Court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing in the case of the sensational Congress Legislature Party (CLP) merger into the ruling TRS to June 12.

The case was filed by Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President N Uttam Kumar Reddy and Congress MLA Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka urging the HC to suspend the official bulletin issued on June 6 by the Speaker of the Telangana Assembly merging the CLP into the TRS.

They also urged the HC to direct the Assembly Speaker to complete the process of the hearings on the complaints filed by them urging him to disqualify all the 12 defected MLAs of the party, within 90 days.

The two Congress leaders also told a division bench of the High Court comprising Acting Chief Justice R S Chauhan and Justice Shameem Akhtar that the bulletin issued by the Speaker was against the provisions of Schedule X and Articles 101, 191 and 324 of the Indian Constitution.

Arguing the case on behalf of the petitioners, advocate Jandhyala Ravi Shankar told the HC that the power to merge a political party into another political party rested with the Election Commission of India and not the Speaker of the House. He also brought to the notice of the HC that they had filed two similar cases against the defecting MLAs and MLCs of the party earlier.

Meanwhile, the HC issued notices to the ten defecting MLAs and four defecting MLCs of the Congress, and adjourned the matter for four weeks.
