HC to hear PIL & poll panel petition on October 12
The Karnataka High Court has issued a notice to the state government in connection with a PIL challenging the appointment by the government of a BBMP administrator and calling for civic polls at the earliest.
The petition, filed by former corporator M Shivaraju and Abdul Wajid, was heard on Wednesday by a division bench headed by Chief Justice A S Oka. The CJ said the PIL would be heard along with a petition of the State Election Commission. The hearing has been adjourned to October 12.
The PIL alleges that the government appointed an administrator so as to postpone civic elections.
