Kochi, Mar 6 (UNI) The Kerala High Court today dismissed a quo warranto petition seeking to disqualify Law Minister M Vijayakumar.

A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice H L Dattu and Mr Justice K M Joseph, however, made it clear that the petitioner would have the liberty to move a better petition.

The petitioner Kalarcode Venugopalan Nair, in his public interest litigation, submitted that the Minister had supported the agitation for a bench of the High Court at Thiruvananthapuram.

He also contended that by doing so he had shown allegiance to a particular province, hence violating the oath of office.

The Minister had committed contempt of court by leading the agitation demanding a bench in the state capital, he contended.
