NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thurs­day was ap­prised by a su­per-spe­cial­ity hospi­tal here that Ut­tar Pradesh politi­cian D P Ya­dav, fac­ing life term in the MLA mur­der case, would un­dergo spinal surgery on Oc­to­ber 19.

Ya­dav was awarded life im­pris­on­ment by a Dehradun CBI court in 2015 for his role in the mur­der of Ma­hen­dra Singh Bhati, an MLA from Ghazi­abad’s Dadri area. The law­maker was shot dead at Dadri rail­way cross­ing in De­cem­ber 1992.

Yashoda Su­per­spe­cial­ity Hospi­tal at Ghazi­abad, in its med­i­cal re­port filed in pur­suance of an ear­lier or­der, told a bench headed by Chief Jus­tice Ran­jan Go­goi that Ya­dav’s vi­ral fever has gone now and he would be op­er­ated upon by us­ing lo­cal anaes­the­sia on Oc­to­ber 19.

The bench, also com­pris­ing Jus­tices S K Kaul and K M Joseph, con­sid­ered the re­port and ex­tended the in­terim bail of the con­tro­ver­sial politi­cian for un­der­go­ing the surgery. It also di­rected the hospi­tal to fur­nish a fresh re­port on Oc­to­ber 22 and fixed the mat­ter for hear­ing a day af­ter.

Af­ter pe­rus­ing the re­port, the court to­day said the surgery, which was said to be a complicated one, can be done through laproscpoic method by us­ing lo­cal anaes­the­sia.

Ear­lier, the apex court had di­rected the hospi­tal to fur­nish a re­port whether Ya­dav was fit to un­dergo spinal surgery and had cau­tioned him against tak­ing any “un­due ad­van­tage”. CHANDI­GARH: Delhi Chief Min­is­ter and Aam Aadmi Party’s na­tional con­vener Arvind Ke­jri­wal Thurs­day said his party will con­test all the 13 Lok Sabha seats in Pun­jab and not en­ter into al­liance.

“We will fight on all Lok Sabha seats from the state, we will not en­ter into any tie-up with any­one,” Ke­jri­wal, who was in Bathinda to at­tend a party leg­is­la­tor’s wedding, told re­porters. He lashed out at the rul­ing Congress in the state and ac­cused it of fail­ing on all fronts.

“He (Amarinder) had promised to give a job in each fam­ily. He had said if any­one is un­em­ployed then he will be given un­em­ploy­ment al­lowance, he had talked about rais­ing so­cial se­cu­rity pen­sion, waiv­ing debt of farm­ers, promised smart­phones to youths. Only tall prom­ises were made, but none have been ful­filled. He spoke lies and now peo­ple of Pun­jab are fed up with them,” he al­leged.
