SC dismisses plea for rescheduling TN vote (Lead)

Published on :

New Delhi, April 4 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a Christian organisation’s plea seeking rescheduling of the April 18 polling for the Lok Sabha in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.

A SC Bench, comprising Justice S.A. Bobde, Justice S. Abdul Nazeer and Justice Indira Banerjee, declined the plea for an early hearing as the petitioner contended that three days including April 18, the polling day, were the holy days of Good Friday and Easter for the Christian community.

As the lawyer for the petitioner mentioned the matter for an early hearing, the court asked: “Can’t you cast vote on a holy day? How long does it take to vote? We don’t want to advise you how to pray and how to cast vote.”

The petitioner had moved the top court against the rejection of its plea by the Madras High Court.

Declining the plea, the court said there was no urgency in hearing the matter.
