Chirag Paswan moves Delhi HC over recognition of Pashupati Kumar Paras as LJP leader


New Delhi, Jul 8(ILNS) Lok Janshakti Party leader Chirag Paswan today filed a petition before the Delhi high Court, challenging the recognition of Pashupati Kumar Paras as the party leader in the Lok Sabha by Speaker Om Birla.

The LJP Member of Parliament from Jamui submitted, “The change of leader in the Lok Sabha is prerogative of particular party and in the present case, Article 26 of the Constitution of the petitioner no 2 (LJP) provides the Central Parliamentary Board will decide who would be leader or Chief Whip in the House or Assembly.”

Paswan, in his petition sought directions to set aside the circular dated June 14, 2021 showing the name of Paras as the leader of LJP Party in Lok Sabha and further to direct the respondent no. 1 to issue corrigendum showing the name of Chirag Paswan as the leader of the Party.

The plea alleged that none of the petitioners were called or informed about the major action, whereas, the decision was taken on the basis of a letter of the chief whip when the parliament was not in session. “The speaker of Lok sabha has acted contrary to practice being followed since long in regard to appointment of leader, Chief whip, etc, which has always been communicated by a political party and it further makes it clear when reference is given defection rule and particularly 2(f), which define the leader in House,” the plea added./ILNS/SNG
