SC directs BJP to move HC over deadline plea
Kolkata: The Supreme Court has directed the state BJP to move High Court over the extension of deadline of the last day of nomination for the forthcoming Panchayat election.
The State Election Commission had announced the extension of the deadline by a day on Monday.
On Tuesday, it had issued a fresh order, cancelling the earlier notification. This had created utter confusion among the Opposition parties and the state BJP had moved the High Court as well as the Supreme Court. Kalyan Banerjee, Trinamool MP and advocate, said it was clear that BJP had suppressed the fact and did not inform the High Court about the move it had made before the Supreme Court. BJP leaders, however, did not turn up on Wednesday.
