Supreme Court Dismisses Plea Seeking Imposition Of President’s Rule In Maharashtra

New Delhi: The Supreme Court refused to entertain a PIL on Friday that sought the dismissal of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra and imposition of President’s Rule in the state.

According to Hindustan Times, the plea that cited the Sushant Singh Rajput case and the controversy over the demolition of actor Kangana Ranaut’s house in Mumbai had alleged the state was not taking actions in line with the Constitution.

“As a petitioner, you are at liberty to approach the President, but do not come here,” a bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde, and justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian said.

Petitioner Vikram Gehlot had filed the PIL and sought the dismissal of the government. He alleged that the affairs of the state were not being carried out in line with constitutional and legal provisions. Gehlot’s plea referred to actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death and the demolition of Kangana Ranaut’s property as examples of poor law and order in the state.

During the hearing, the apex court took strong note of the submissions and questioned as to how it can be said that the Constitution is not being followed because of some incidents. Maharashtra is a big state, observed the bench.
