HC suspends disqualification order of lone TMC MLA who defected to Congress

The Manipur High Court Friday suspended the disqualification order of lone Trinamool Congress MLA, T Robindro who had defected from the BJP-run coalition government in the state to join the Congress.

The interim order was passed by a division bench comprising Justice Lanusungkum Jamir and Justice A Bimol in response to the petition filed by the disqualified MLA challenging his disqualification from being a member of the Manipur Legislative Assembly.

“On perusal of the records, we are prima facie convinced at this stage that an interim order is called for”, said the division bench. The HC has fixed July 20 for the next hearing.
