HC allows govt to take decisions but defer implementation

The Patna High Court on Wednesday modified its previous order and gave freedom to the Jitan Ram Manjhi government to take decisions but directed that their implementation should be only after February 21.

The order was passed by a bench of Chief Justice L Narsimha Reddy and Justice Vikash Jain on a PIL filed by JD(U) legislator Niraj Kumar.

“Take decision but implementation should be deferred till February 21,” the bench said.
The Manjhi government will seek a confidence vote on February 20.

The state government had sought a modification on the court’s earlier order and the case was taken up on Wednesday. The new counsel of the state government Varun Sinha argued that the PIL was not maintainable.
