HC dismisses pleas against Telangana House dissolution
: 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.
