The High Court, on Wednesday, admitted a petition seeking to set aside the appointment of Majid Hussain as city mayor.

Petitioner Nisaruddin Ahmed Jeddy, an advocate sought a direction in the nature of “writ of quo warranto” against Majid Hussain. The matter would be heard by Justice Noushad Ali next week.

The petitioner submitted that he had recently approached the mayor’s office to make a representation on the deteriorating condition of the poor and those who have taken to begging at every nook and corner of the city to seek immediate action for their rehabilitation.

He submitted that mayor Majid Hussain had promised to eradicate begging in the city and rehabilitate the beggers. The mayor behaved in a high-handed manner and summoned ‘goondas’ to physically assault, the petitioner said.
