SC hearing on MP floor test postponed to afternoon

Agency News

The Supreme Court will hear the BJP's plea asking for an immediate floor test later on Wednesday.

This is mainly due to the senior advocate representing the BJP -- former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi -- is also arguing a different case (related to staggered payment of telcos' AGR dues). As well, Kapil Sibal, who is appearing for the Congress, has asked the top court for more time to reply to the plea.

The BJP's plea will be heard after the AGR case. Meanwhile, appearing for Congress, Dushyant Dave slammed BJP saying Congress MLAs were kidnapped and BJP destroys constitutional morality.
