Youth Congress leader moves Supreme Court seeking to intervene in a case filed by rebel MLAs
The Karnataka Youth Congress leader moved the Supreme Court seeking to intervene in the case registered by 10 rebel Congress and JD(S) MLAs for a direction to the Assembly Speaker to accept their resignations. The Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi was said by the counsel of Anil Chacko Joseph, the Youth Congress leader, that the resignations by the MLAs were nothing but fairly absconding and requested as an intervenor.
The apex court has to hear the petition of the 10 rebel MLA seeking a direction to Karnataka assembly speaker K R Ramesh Kumar for accepting their resignations. Chacko’s statement said the resignation had the same effect as defecting from a party and that the MLAs were “bought or persuaded to resign by payment of enormous sums of money.” The apex court allowed Chacko to be heard as a judge in the matter.
