Rajasthan Crisis : Congress MLAs on Protest at Raj Governer House

Jaipur, Rajasthan: In major relief for the Sachin Pilot camp, the Rajasthan High Court today ordered ‘status quo’ to be maintained in the disqualification case against the now-sacked deputy chief minister and 18 other dissidents, putting off the decision till Monday when the Supreme Court hears the case. The order came after the court allowed the application moved by Team Pilot seeking impleadment of the Union of India as a party to the proceedings in the disqualification matter. 




A bench of Chief Justice Indrajit Mahanty and Justice Prakash Gupta allowed the application that was moved by the petitioners on Thursday. The court then adjourned for 20 minutes. The application for impleadment was moved on the grounds that the constitutional amendment is under challenge and, therefore, the Union of India is a necessary party now. The dissident Congress MLAs led by Pilot have challenged their disqualification notices through the writ petition which was taken up by the bench on Friday last week and arguments were held.
