Amid the stand-off over the suspension of seven BJP MLAs, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked them if they were ready to apologise to the Lieutenant-Governor for repeatedly interrupting his address to the Legislative Assembly that led to their suspension.

Dignity of L-G

The matter is not political and involves the dignity of the office of the L-G. I spoke to the Speaker. He also suggested the route followed by the Supreme Court in Raghav Chadha’s case. — Sudhir Nandrajog, Senior Advocate

Justice Subramonium Prasad asked senior counsel Jayant Mehta, representing the suspended legislators, to take instructions on this after the lawyer representing the Assembly, Sudhir Nandrajog, said a similar approach was adopted in the Supreme Court to end the suspension of AAP Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha.

Appearing for the Assembly, senior advocate Sudhir Nandrajog said the matter was not political and involved the dignity of the office of the L-G.

“I spoke to the Speaker. He also suggested the route followed by the Supreme Court in Chadha’s case. If members were to come and meet the Speaker and apologise to the L-G, the whole thing could be put through,” Nandrajog said.

As Mehta said they had no problem apologising to the L-G, Justice Prasad asked the petitioners’ counsel to come back in the post-lunch session with instructions.

Subsequently, the court was informed there was some “development” in the matter, following which the petitions were posted for hearing on February 21. The seven BJP MLAs approached the high court on Monday challenging their indefinite suspension from the Assembly for interrupting Saxena’s address. (With PTI Inputs)
