The judge also noted that the interim order stands until further orders.
Hearing over expelled MLAs’ plea deferred
The plea seeking a direction to the Assembly Speaker to disqualify Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam and 10 other AIADMK MLAs under the anti-defection law for voting against Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami has been adjourned to October 27.
Despite Advocate General Vijay Narayan insisting on the case being heard during the first week of November, Justice K Ravichandrabaabu posted the case to October 27. Kapil Sibal, appearing for the DMK, contended that the hearing can’t be delayed.
