Major win for Sachin Pilot camp in Supreme Court in Disqualification Row

In a major relief to the Sachin Pilot camp, the Supreme Court today said Rajasthan Assembly Speaker CP Joshi cannot decide on disqualification of 19 rebel Congress MLAs till the top court makes a decision on the issue.

The apex court also allowed the Rajasthan high court to go ahead and pronounce its ruling on the plea by the dissident MLAs against the disqualification proceedings initiated by the Speaker, but said the verdict will remain subject to the outcome of the hearing in the SC.
