The Supreme Court on Friday adjourned the hearing of the plea filed against Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav over alleged irregularities in the allocation of funds in 2004 to educational institutions till summer vacations. Lawyer Mahendra Nath Rai had in his plea stated that the then Uttar Pradesh Government had allegedly misutilised government’s funds.

“Our case is pending in the Supreme Court from 2005. The final verdict was expected today, but it has been postponed till the summer vacations. The court, however, did not reveal the reason behind it. Such matters should not be delayed especially when the assembly elections are round the corner,” said Rai.
