Chennai, Jun 18 (UNI) Nalini, a life convict in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, who had moved Madras High Court, seeking premature release, today vehemently opposed Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy impleading in the case.
In her counter to Dr Swamy's impleading petition, opposing her premature release, she said he was neither a necessary party nor a proper party and hence his petition was liable to be dismissed.
She said she had filed the present writ petition, challenging the Tamil Nadu Government Order dated October 31, 2007, rejecting her request for premature release, and the necessary party to the above proceedings was only herself and the State Government.
She had impleaded the Advisory Board, Additional Director General of Prison and the Home Ministry as party respondents in this case as she had made some allegations against them, she said.
Dr Swamy was in no way connected with the GO (rejecting her plea for premature release) and had no authority to defend the order of the State Government, Nalini contended.
''The relief claimed is only against the order passed by the State Government and no individual has any right to interfere in this matter,'' she added.
''It is well settled by law that a necessary party is one without whom any order cannot be made effectively and whose presence is necessary for a complete and final decision on the question involved in the proceedings,'' she said.
