Arguing for the speaker, Singhvi said that the petition of the Pilot camp is pre-mature, it should be rejected.
Jaipur| The Rajasthan High Court can pronounce the verdict today on the petition of the Pilot camp MLAs against the notice of the speaker. The High Court will hear the case today again at 10.30 am. During the hearing on Monday in the court, Abhishek Manu Singhvi made the arguments on behalf of the speaker CP Joshi. Singhvi said that the speaker has sent just a notice to the MLAs and has not disqualified them. He said that the petition of the Pilot camp is pre-mature, it should be rejected.
Harish Salve argued on behalf of the Pilot faction. Salve said that toppling the government is a different matter and demanding a different chief minister is another matter. Earlier on Friday, he also said that no activity outside the Legislative Assembly could be considered a violation of the Anti-defection Act. The session is also not running, so the whip has no meaning.
It is expected that CM Ashok Gehlot will convene a special assembly session on Wednesday.
