‘Terrible judicial precedent’: Congress on SC order on Karnataka rebel MLAs

“SC’s order nullifying the Whip and by extension, operation of Constitution’s Xth Schedule to punish MLA’s betraying the public mandate, sets a terrible judicial precedent! Blanket protection to MLA’s, who are driven not by ideology but by far baser concerns, is unheard-of,” Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted.
The Congress on Wednesday said the Supreme Court order on Karnataka rebel MLAs, absolving them of the obligation to attend Thursday’s floor test, sets ‘terrible judicial precedent’.

“SC’s order nullifying the Whip and by extension, operation of Constitution’s Xth Schedule to punish MLA’s betraying the public mandate, sets a terrible judicial precedent! Blanket protection to MLA’s, who are driven not by ideology but by far baser concerns, is unheard-of,” Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted hours after the top court said that the MLAs could not be compelled to attend the Karnataka assembly session where the HD Kumaraswamy-led government is scheduled to face floor trust.
