Supreme Court refuses to modify verdict on convicted lawmakers

The court also noted it had given due reasons why only those convicted after July 10 should incur disqualification.

The Supreme Court on Monday refused to modify its verdict so as to hold that all the sitting MPs and MLAs,who stood convicted as on its judgement dated July 10,will also be disqualified.

The court had earlier ruled that disqualification would be incurred only if members are convicted post its July 10 judgement. A plea for modification in its judgement was filed,pleading for extending the disqualification also to members who stood convicted in criminal cases as on July 10.

A bench led by Justice A K Patnaik dismissed the application,saying the appropriate remedy for the petitioner was to file a review petition.

The court also noted it had given due reasons why only those convicted after July 10 should incur disqualification under the Representation of People Act.
