Patna High Court on Monday dismissed two PILs, which had challenged the formation of the NDA government in Bihar led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) and BJP. Earlier, a division bench comprising Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice A K Upadhyay had adjourned the matter on July 28, according to PTI. Two PILs were filed ahead of the crucial floor test that Kumar government won with 131 votes during a one-day special session of the Bihar assembly. Notably, one PIL was been filed by RJD MLAs Saroj Yadav and Chandan Verma, while the second one by Jitendra Kumar, who is a member of the Samajwadi Party. The petitions sought the court’s order for issuance of a direction to invite the leader of the single largest party to form the government in the state.

The court during the hearing observed that no intervention of the court is required, after floor test in the state Assembly.

Principal Additional Advocate General Lalit Kishore and Additional Solicitor General S D Sanjay had termed the PILs as frivolous. Kishore told the court that while copy of the petitions had been given to the counsel of the Union government, the same was not served to those of other parties including the Governor, the Election Commission of India and the Government of Bihar. After a brief hearing, the court posted the matter for further hearing on Monday next.
