BENGALURU: The High Court will hear the petitions seeking directions not to allow MLAs, MLCs and MPs to vote in Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) mayoral poll on Wednesday. The election is scheduled for Friday.

Justice Raghvendra S Chauhan will hear the petitions filed by five BJP women corporators and others.

Meanwhile, a division bench of officiating Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice B V Nagarathna adjourned hearing on two public interest petitions on the similar issue on Tuesday.

During the hearing, Advocate General Ravivarma Kumar informed the court that four other similar writ petitions are pending before a single judge bench.

In reply, the division bench clarified that the pendency of these writ petitions will not deter the single judge to proceed with the hearing of the other writ petitions.
