Senior advocate Kapil Sibal mentioned the matter before a bench presided over by Justice N V Ramana, on behalf of Congress leader Dinesh Gundu Rao. He said this would have a material bearing on adjudication of the writ petitions filed by disqualified MLAs of Karnataka.

The court said judgement had already been reserved in the plea by disqualified MLAs against the order by the then Speaker.
