The Supreme Court on Monday refused to entertain a plea challenging the Akhilesh Yadav government’s Samajwadi pension scheme for the poor.

A bench comprising chief justice JS Khehar and justices DY Chandrachud and SK Kaul said the scheme was meant for the poor and “it is a beautiful one”.

The court was hearing the appeal filed by Hindu Front for Justice against the Allahabad High Court order which did not find merit in the plea against the scheme.

It was alleged that it provides 25% reservation for minorities which is not permissible under the Constitution.
