Two independent Karnataka MLAs withdraw plea

New Delhi, July 25 (TIWN) Two Karnataka independent MLAs -- R. Shankar and H. Nagesh -- on Thursday withdraw their plea from the Supreme Court seeking direction to the Assembly Speaker to conduct a floor test in the House immediately.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi took note of the submissions of the senior lawyers representing the speaker and Kumaraswamy that they have no objection to the withdrawal of the petition.   The bench comprising Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose then allowed the counsel for MLAs R Shankar and H Nagesh to withdraw the plea on the ground that it has now become infructuous after the floor test on Tuesday evening. The apex court expressed displeasure over the senior lawyers not-appearing before it for seeking the withdrawal of the plea.
