The Gujarat High Court on Tuesday declined to hear a petition moved by the Congress seeking a direction to Assembly speaker Rajendra Trivedi to take a prompt decision on disqualification of its legislator Alpesh Thakor.
Speaking to media persons, Assistant government pleader Utkarsh Sharma said: “The petition, which was moved by the Congress party, was rejected by the honourable high court. Gujarat Assembly speaker will go through the matter & take a decision accordingly.”
In a run-up to the Lok Sabha elections, Thakor, an MLA from Radhanpur Assembly constituency from North Gujarat, had resigned as the Congress Committee secretary in-charge of Bihar & other posts he held in the party.
Thakor, despite tendering his resignation from all post of the party, had not quit the membership of the house.
