In a breather to five Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) legislators who sought to merge their party’s legislative wing with the Congress, the Supreme Court Wednesday stayed the Punjab and Haryana High Court’s direction to the Haryana assembly speaker to decide on their fate.

The apex court bench headed by Justice Altamas Kabir suspended the operation of all directions of the high court by which these five legislators were asked to relinquish their official positions and participate in the assembly as unattached members.

The high court, ruling on a plea for their disqualification, had held that they will not sit in the assembly as Congress members.

The apex court passed the stay order after Attorney General G. Vahanvati apprised the court of the strictures passed by the high court against the assembly speaker and its “temporary disqualification” of the five lawmakers.
