Mayor post for ST: HC dismisses petition

The High Court dismissed the petition filed by two corporators seeking to include Scheduled Tribe (ST) candidates for the post of Mayor/Deputy Mayor for the year 2012-2013.

Justice Nagmohan Das dismissed the petition terming it infructuous, as the petition had sought ST category to be included for the year 2012-2013, but BBMP has issued notification for the Mayor/Deputy Mayor's election for the year 2013-2014.

A single bench had earlier issued orders to consider ST candidates for the Mayor/Deputy Mayor's election for the year 2013-2014. Since the petition had sought the post for 2012-2013, the bench stated the petition is invalid and directed the petitioners to file a fresh petition.
