July 31, 2017
The Patna high court on Monday dismissed two petitions challenging formation of the new government by Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal-United along with the Bharatiya Janata Party, saying no intervention of the court is required after floor test in the state assembly.
The two PILs had challenged the formation of the new government on the ground that it had violated the judgment in the S R Bommai case.
After hearing all parties, a division bench comprising Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice A K Upadhyay dismissed the two PILs saying, after floor test in the state assembly, no intervention of the court is required.(Agencies)
