THE SPECIALLY constituted vacation Bench of the High Court dismissed here on Tuesday the legislators’ plea for supply of the copies of certain documents by Speaker Mata Prasad Pandey.

The legislators required the documents to file their reply to the disqualification proceedings launched against them by chief whip of the Lok Tantrik Bahujan Dal Yogesh Pratap Singh during the recent Rajya Sabha biennial election in the state, it was said.

The Bench comprising Justice Abdul Mateen and Justice Rajiv Sharma reserved the verdict on the issue after hearing arguments of both the parties here yesterday.

While dismissing the legislators’ plea, the bench remarked that since the matter was sub judice before the apex court, the application being misconceived was liable to be rejected.

Earlier, the High Court had directed the Speaker to furnish copies of the required documents to the petitioners. However, after hearing both parties the High Court, recalling its earlier orders, dismissed the legislators’ plea holding the same as misconceived in view of the matter being sub judice before the apex court.

It was argued by additional advocate general J N Mathur on behalf of the State that since the matter was sub judice before the apex court, no such directive ought to have been issued by the High Court.
