Speaker to move SC against HC order to defer action against Pilot and rebel leaders

Rajasthan Speaker CP Joshi has said that he will approach the Supreme Court against the High Court direction to not to take any action on disqualification notices against Sachin Pilot and rebel MLAs.
 
While addressing a press conference in Jaipur on wednesday, Speaker CP Joshi said Rajasthan was heading to constitutional crisis and to avert that, he decided to move the Supreme Court.
 
 He said “The Speaker has the complete authority to send a show-cause notice. I have asked my counsel to file a Special Leave Petition (SLP) in Supreme Court,”.
 
"There is a big threat to the constitutional democracy if institutions circumvent authority. We have abided by every decision of constitutional authorities. I hope the dignity of the assembly Speaker is maintained. This is not personal. I hope the decision by Supreme Court will be a landmark judgment in the matter,” the Rajasthan Speaker said.
