DMK seeks urgent hearing in Supreme Court of its plea to disqualify 11 AIADMK MLAs
New Delhi, July 02: The DMK on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court seeking urgent hearing of its plea for disqualification of 11 AIADMK MLAs for voting against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palanisami in a 2017 confidence motion.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said it will consider listing Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam's petition seeking disqualification of the MLAs, including Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam.
The Madras High Court had in April last year declined a plea by the DMK to disqualify the 11 MLAs.
Panneerselvam and the other 10 MLAs, then in the rebel camp, had voted against the trust vote sought by Palaniswami on February 18, 2017.
