Stable governance should be considered as a basic structure of the Constitution so that nobody tends to work against the stability of an elected government, Dushyant Dave
The Supreme Court today began hearing the plea filed by BJP leaders from seeking a direction to conduct a floor test in the wake of the ongoing Madhya Pradesh political crisis.
The matter was heard by a Bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and Hemant Gupta.
Today's hearing got off to a false start, as Senior Advocate Mukul Rohtagi, who was slated to appear for the BJP MLA petitioners, was in another courtroom for the AGR case.
Dushyant Dave, miffed at waiting for Rohatgi to appear, told the Bench,
"Other counsels have been waiting for 45 minutes in the Court and the same is not safe during such a time of Coronavirus."
He went on to say that heavens were not going to fall if the matter is not heard today, and sought time to file a reply.
Dave, arguing for the Congress party, added that the government in Madhya Pradesh was formed with majority, and now their MLAs are being abducted.
Senior Advocate Maninder Singh, appearing for the rebel MLAs replied that nobody has been abducted.
