Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India], July 3 (ANI): The Gujarat High Court on Tuesday declined to hear a petition moved by the Congress seeking a direction to Assembly speaker Rajendra Trivedi to take a prompt decision on disqualification of its legislator Alpesh Thakor.
Speaking to media persons, Assistant government pleader Utkarsh Sharma said: "The petition, which was moved by the Congress party, was rejected by the honourable high court. Gujarat Assembly speaker will go through the matter and take a decision accordingly."
In a run-up to the Lok Sabha elections, Thakor, an MLA from Radhanpur Assembly constituency from North Gujarat, had resigned as the Congress Committee secretary in-charge of Bihar and other posts he held in the party.
Thakor, despite tendering his resignation from all post of the party, had not quit the membership of the house. (ANI)
