SINGLE HC BENCH TO HEAR BENGAL PANCHAYAT POLL CASE: CALCUTTA HC
KOLKATA: A division bench of the Calcutta high court on Monday ruled that a single bench of justice Subrata Talukdar will hear a petition regarding the panchayat elections. The bench said if necessary, hearing might take place every day. Justice Talukdar, who ordered a stay on the elections after the tate Election Commission’s flip-flop on the last date of nominations, will hear it on Tuesday. Welcoming the order, BJP’S Bengal unit general secretary Pratap Banerjee said, “The division bench threw out the ruling party’s appeal to vacate the single bench order.” “We will argue our matter in Calcutta HC and would not go to the SC” said Kalyan Banerjee, advocate for TMC.
