On Monday, the Supreme Court has stayed the Election Commission of India (ECI) on March 10 the decision to notifying Talala Assembly Constituency seat in Gujarat as vacant and announcing bypolls there along with forthcoming Lok Sabha Elections.  

A justice-bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi has also issued a notice to the ECI on a petition filed by ex-Congress Legislator BD Barad, who had challenged his dismissed as an MLA and the subsequent decision of EC to notify the seat as vacant.

BD Barad has moved the Supreme Court against the March 27’ Verdict of Gujarat High Court, dismissed his petition against his disqualification as an MLA and further against the Election Body’s decision to declare the bypolls there.

On March 5, Mr. Barad was disqualified as a legislator by the Assembly Speaker over his conviction in a case.
