TDP Breaches Court Orders

  • Roja’s lawyers take into the court’s view that she is not allowed into assembly
  • YSRCP MLAs slam the Government’s behaviour
  • Legal experts state that this is violation of constitution
  •  Hyderabad: YSRCP MLA Roja’s lawyers took to the notice of the High Court that she had not been allowed into the assembly. They found fault in the Government’s ignoring the court’s orders and appealed to the court to consider this as disregard of the court. It is known that the Supreme Court and the High Court have cautioned the Government for suspending Roja from the assembly for a year against the rules. They made it clear that the assembly did not deserve the right to suspend her for a year and issued interim orders to allow her into the assembly, a copy of which Roja submitted to the assembly’s secretary. In spite of this, Roja was held back from entering the house. Legal experts slammed the Government’s behaviour with respect to this incident. They remarked that this was sheer violation of court orders and mockery towards democracy.

     Prominent lawyer Ravichandra opined that not allowing MLA Roja into assembly was utter disregard of court orders. He recollected that the Supreme Court had questioned even before the verdict was delivered regarding this case what was going on in this country.  He suggested that Roja’s suspension was unlawful and unjust and if the court orders stated to allow her into the house, it had to be obeyed. Breaching court’s orders was not something to be done by a people’s representative, though a common man who did the same could be excused, exclaimed lawyer Ravichandra.

     He also mentioned that the behaviour of a people’s representative should be inspiration for the generations to come. He suggested that a better thing to do in case of dissatisfaction towards the verdict would have been to appeal to the court. Ravi Chandra informed that this was not the first time something like this had happened and the Supreme Court had already delivered its verdict in a similar scenario before. He made it clear that the judicial system could review the laws formed by the assembly and that the legislative houses could not deny them.
