HC dis­misses pleas against Te­lan­gana House dis­so­lu­tion

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Nation -

: The Hy­der­abad high court on Fri­day dis­missed pleas chal­leng­ing the dis­so­lu­tion of Te­lan­gana Assem­bly nine months ahead of the com­ple­tion of its term. The pe­ti­tion­ers had sought the court to de­clare as un­con­sti­tu­tional the dis­so­lu­tion of the assem­bly by the Gover­nor on the state cab­i­net’s ad­vice with­out as­cer­tain­ing the views of the mem­bers of the House. A di­vi­sion bench, com­pris­ing Chief Jus­tice Thot­tathil B. Rad­hakr­ish­nan and Jus­tice S. V. Bhatt, ob­served that there was no merit in the con­tentions by the pe­ti­tion­ers. The bench made it clear that it is not proper for the court to in­ter­fere with the demo­cratic process as the Elec­tion Com­mis­sion has al­ready an­nounced the elec­tion sched­ule.
