The High Court on Wednesday issued a notice to the Election Commission of India on a petition by ‘founder president’ of the KJP Padmanabha Prasanna Kumar challenging its February 21 order declaring former CM B S Yeddyurappa as the party president.

In his petition, Prasanna Kumar said KJP spokesperson Dhanajaya Kumar announced that Prasanna Kumar had resigned from the party post, and they produced a forged letter before the Election Commission (EC) announcing his resignation. The party’s executive management committee did not pass any resolution electing Yeddyurappa as the party president, he said, and added, all the documents produced before the EC were forged. He sought quashing of the EC’s order and a direction to declare him as KJP president.

Justice Mohan M Shantanagoudar issued a notice to the EC and adjourned the case.
