HC refuses stay order to rebel JD (U) leader Ali Anwar

New Delhi Jan 3 (UNI) The Delhi High Court, on Wednesday, after hearing a petition of rebel Janata Dal (United) leader Ali Anwar, who was removed from the Rajya Sabha, refused to stay the order.
The court allowed Anwar to get his salaries, allowances and perquisites, till it disposes of his main petition.
Anwar had filed a petition before the Delhi High Court, seeking an interim stay against his removal from the Rajya Sabha by Chairperson Venkaiah Naidu on December 4, 2017. Chairperson Venkaiah Naidu has also removed former JD (U) President Sharad Yadav.
Last year in the month of September, JD (U) leaders RCP Singh and Sanjay Jha had submitted a petition before Rajya Sabha Chairperson Venkaiah Naidu and sought the disqualification of both the Members of Parliament.
The leaders broke away from the JD (U) after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar parted from the alliance with the Congress and the Rashtriya Janata Dal, to tie up with the Bharatiya Janata Party in July.
Anwar was disqualified for taking a cue from Yadav's actions and indulging in alleged 'anti-party activities'. Mr Naidu's disqualification order said Yadav had ''voluntarily given up his membership of the political party, Janata Dal (United), by which he was set up as a candidate for election to the Rajya Sabha'' and has ''incurred disqualification''.
Anwar’s Rajya Sabha term was due to expire in April, this year.
Delhi HC Justice Vibhu Bakhru, after hearing the petition, said the order cannot be stayed at this stage. The court adjourned the matter for March 1, for further hearing.
