New Delhi | A rebel Congress MLA today moved the Supreme Court challenging the Uttarakhand High Court judgement upholding the decision of the Speaker to disqualify her in the Assembly. The plea in this regard was mentioned before a bench comprising Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justice R Banumathi which posted the matter for hearing tomorrow.

The disqualified Congress MLA, Shaila Rani Rawat’s petition was mentioned by advocate M L Sharma, who had yesterday made an attempt to stop the opening of the result of the floor test in Uttarakhand Assembly but did not succeed.

She was disqualified along with eight others, who all have already challenged the High Court decision in the apex court which had refused to grant any relief of stay before the May 10 floor test. The apex court has clarified that they will remain disqualified unless it allows their petition.
