The Patna High Court on Monday dismissed two PILs challenging the formation of the new government by Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) along with the BJP. After hearing all parties, a division bench comprising Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice A K Upadhyay dismissed the two PILs saying no intervention of the court is required, after floor test in the state Assembly.
While one PIL was filed by RJD MLAs Saroj Yadav and Chandan Verma, the second one was filed by Jitendra Kumar, a Samajwadi Party member. On Friday last, the court had adjourned the matter for today.
The new Nitish Kumar government in which the NDA is a coalition partner won the trust vote on Friday last.
