The Supreme Court on Monday refused to entertain a PIL,seeking a direction to declare as illegal an amendment to allow jailed persons to contest polls.
A bench led by Justice H L Dattu said that such a challenge against the amendment would lie before the high court and the petitioner should first move there. “We should not be entertaining such petitions directly. You go to the high court and if the high court refuses to hear you or does not grant you the relief,then come to us,” the bench told petitioner M L Sharma.
In order to nullify an apex court order,the government had brought an amendment in the Representation of the People Act to allow those in judicial custody to contest election.
