SC Denies Stay on Disqualification of Congress Leaders

The Supreme Court refuses to stay the disqualification of six Congress leaders from Himachal Pradesh who cross-voted for the BJP candidate during the Rajya Sabha elections.

Key Decisions by the Apex Court

Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta deny permission for the six MLAs to vote or participate in the House proceedings. The court schedules the matter for further hearing in the second week of May.

Background and Political Implications

Following the disqualification by Speaker Kuldeep Singh Pathania, six Congress MLAs faced repercussions under the anti-defection law. The BJP, despite having fewer MLAs, managed to secure additional votes, leading to a tie in the Rajya Sabha election.

Legal Battle and Electoral Context

With the general elections approaching and nomination dates announced, the legal battle intensifies. The BJP’s victory in the Rajya Sabha election raises questions about political alliances and the strength of party loyalty in the state assembly.
