The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court has issued fresh notices to the four major political parties of Uttar Pradesh seeking their response on why there should not be a “complete ban forever” on caste-based rallies in the state and in case of violation, why the election commission should not take action against them.
The court issued fresh notices after no action was taken on its interim order, passed nine years ago.
A bench of Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Jaspreet Singh passed the order on an old PIL filed by lawyer Motilal Yadav, who had sought a ban on caste-based rallies in Uttar Pradesh.
In its order, the bench has also issued notice to the Chief Election Commissioner to respond on the issue, fixing December 15 as the next date of hearing.
