CM files objections; High Court hearing today

The Court is scheduled to hear the objections on Friday. The Chief Minister has also opposed to impleading him as the respondent in the petition.

"The impleading applications deserve no consideration. To fill up the lacunae in the petition, the MLAs have made me as a party. The allegations made against the Speaker was nothing but to scandalise the issue," Yeddyurappa has stated in the objections.

Along with the Chief Minister, BJP MLA C T Ravi and chief whip of the government in the Assembly, D N  Jeevaraj have also filed the objections to the petition. The full bench on Friday will hear all applications filed by the disqualified MLAs.

Yeddyurappa has further submitted that, all independent MLAs had joined BJP, they have also shared the dais with the chief minister in party functions and meetings. He has also stated that the disqualified MLAs, when they were legislators, had accepted the whips issued by the chief whip and have acted accordingly.

The filing of impleading application is an abuse of the process of the law, said Yeddyurappa and requested the court to reject the impleading application.

"The dispute regarding disqualification is between Speaker, C T Ravi and Jeevaraj, the proposed respondent (Yeddyurappa) is in no way connection in the case," stated in the objections. "Yeddyurappa has the highest respect to the post of speaker. He never used any influence nor used his office for the purpose of passing disqualification order. Hence, proposed respondent denies all allegations made against him", said in the objections.
