BANGALORE: The High Court on Friday issued notices to the Chief Electoral Officer and Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on a PIL filed by two corporators of the Palike alleging the state government of not following the roster while fixing reservations for the post of Mayor.

The petitioners, Neelasandra corporator Lokesh Nayak and Byatarayanapura corporator Indira, contended that the rotation policy while selecting the Mayor and rules and procedures pertaining to the reservation of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes were not followed from 1995 till date.

They also sought a stay on the Mayor’s selection process, which is scheduled for April 26. A division bench comprising Chief Justice Vikramajit Sen and Justice B V Nagarathna issued the notices.
