Allahabad HC refuses to entertain plea against reserving seat of Gram Pradhan in GP polls

-

Allahabad, Apr 2 (ILNS) The Allahabad High Court today refused to intervene on a petition filed against reserving the seat of the Gram Pradhan in the Gram Panchayat elections, despite not having a single Scheduled Tribe person in the entire District.

The Division Bench of Justice MC Tripathi and Justice Saurabh Shyam Shamsheri passed this order, while hearing a plea filed by Paramatma Nayak and two others.

Bipin Behari Pandey, Chief Standing Counsel, raised a preliminary objection regarding maintainability of the petition on the ground that on March 26, 2021, the State Election Commission had issued a notification for holding Panchyat elections in the state and in view of the constitutional bar contained in Article 243-O of the Constitution, the petition is liable to be dismissed.

The Court stated that the constitutional bar contained in Article 243-O of the Constitution would not be appropriate or proper for the Court to entertain, once the electoral process has been initiated.

“Hence, we decline to exercise our writ jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution on that ground,” it observed. ILNS/SNG/RJ
