JD (U)-Sharad Yadav tussle: SC partially modifies Delhi HC order, grants relief till July 12
The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday partially modified a Delhi High Court order which allowed rebel JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav to use the official residence until the the court decides on his plea challenging disqualification from the Rajya Sabha.
Granting him relief till July 12, the apex court reportedly said, "Sharad Yadav will not get salary, allowances and other facilities like air and rail ticket."
The Supreme Court has also asked the High Court to hear and expedite Sharad Yadav's plea in which he has challenged his disqualification.
The JD(U) yesterday moved the Supreme Court (SC) to get rebel Parliamentarian Sharad Yadav to vacate his official residence.
Yadav had gone to Delhi HC challenging his disqualification on several grounds, including the one concerning the basic principle of natural justice, as he was not heard by the Rajya Sabha chairman prior to passing of order against him.
Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar were disqualified from Rajya Sabha on the basis of a petition filed by the JD (U). Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar are at loggerheads with JD (U) after Nitish Kumar broke the alliance with the 'Grand Alliance' and formed a government with the BJP in Bihar. Sharad then attended an anti-BJP rally called by RJD supremo Lalu Yadav in August last year.
JD (U) then asked Rajya Sabha chairman Venkaih Naidu and asked him to terminate the membership of Sharad and Ali Anwar for indulging in anti-party activities.
