HYDERABAD: In a setback to former TRS MLCs S Ramulu Naik and K Yadava Reddy, a division bench of Telangana High Court on Wednesday dismissed the petitions filed by them challenging their disqualification from the MLC posts by the Legislative Council chairman in January this year. The Court did not find any illegality in the orders passed by the Council chairman in disqualifying the petitioners and there were no merits to allow the petitions filed by them, the bench observed.

The bench, comprising Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice Shameem Akther, dismissed the petitions filed separately by Ramulu Naik and Yadava Reddy seeking to suspend the order passed, disqualifying them from the MLC posts by the Legislative Council chairman.

The petitioners’ counsels urged the bench to direct the ECI not to issue poll notification immediately for the vacant MLC posts to enable them to move the Supreme Court on the issue. Refusing to consider the plea, the bench said that it cannot prevent the ECI from issuing a notification since it has dismissed the petitions. The petition filed by R Bhoopathi Reddy against his disqualification from the MLC post, will come up for hearing in September.
