Rajasthan Assembly Speaker moves SC against high court order directing status quo in disqualification of MLAs

New Delhi: The Rajasthan Assembly Speaker on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court challenging the 24 July order of the high court which had directed maintenance of status quo on the disqualification notice issued to 19 dissident Congress MLAs, including sacked deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot.

In his appeal, the Speaker said that the high court's order is "ex-facie unconstitutional" and is a "direct intrusion" into the domain exclusively reserved for the Speaker under the Tenth Schedule of the Constitution.

The plea, filed through advocate Sunil Fernandes, claimed that the high court’s order is a “direct interference” in the ''proceedings of the House'' under the Tenth Schedule, which is prohibited under Article 212 of the Constitution.

“It is further submitted that the impugned order is completely non reasoned and does not reveal any reasons for passing the status quo order,” the plea said.

The Assembly Speaker had issued the notice to these MLAs on 14 July after the ruling Congress had complained to him that the legislators had defied a whip to attend two legislature party meetings.

The high court had passed the order on the plea filed by the MLAs who have challenged the disqualification notice issued to them.
