STORY TO BE UPDATED

It was on Wednesday night that the Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala invited the BJP, led by B.S Yeddyurappa, to form the government, on the basis of his claim that he had majority support.

After the last hearing the Bench held in the Supreme Court on the plea of Congress-JD(S) legislators seeking a stay of the swearing-in of B.S Yeddyurappa as the Chief Minister of Karnataka, the Supreme Court directed him to produce the letter sent to Governor showing majority before the Court on Friday.  The Court, however, declined to stay his oath-taking ceremony scheduled on Thursday.

After hearing the parties, we are of the opinion that it is necessary to peruse the letters dated 15th May 2018 and 16th May, 2018 submitted by the respondent no.3(Yeddyurappa) to the Governor which found a mention in the communication dated 16th May 2018 of the Hon’ble Governor. We request the learned Attorney General and/or respondent no.3 to produce these letters on the next date of hearing

This Court is not passing any order staying the oath-taking ceremony of respondent no.3. In case, he is given oath in the meantime, that shall be subject to further orders of this Court and the final outcome of the writ petition”,  stated the order of the Court.

The midnight bench comprising Justices A.K Sikri, S.A Bobde and Ashok Bhushan was constituted on an urgent mentioning before the Chief Justice by Senior Advocate Dr.Abhishek Manu Singhvi on behalf of the petitioners.

    People of this country were a ghast by the developments in Karnataka just about realising the stubborn combine of Governmental Institutions in the country. The saffron wielding Governor, a biased CJI and a belligerent PM. But the night Bench of Supreme Court came to rescue and recourse of Democratic norms sans CJI.

    First I salute & honour to all justices the verdict delivered. At least in India Justice is appreciated. There should be reformation of law that no change of party as regards to floor test rather by election of short fall Constituency with an amicable settlement of nearest two largest party. Now for the time being a good outcome is noticed. The identical cases also be dealt with Justice which I hope for the interest of smooth democracy.

    Regards.
