New Delhi: The Supreme Court has dismissed a petition seeking the leader of opposition status for Congress party in the Parliament. The apex court has posed the question as to why the Congress hasn’t knocked on its doorstep themselves.
The Supreme Court might have rejected the Congress's demand because they do not hold the number of seats required to hold the status of LoP.
This has also got to do with the fact that the plea was not filed directly by the party. It was cited by the court that such a plea cannot be entertained when filed by a third party.
It is also being noted by the court that the party is financially secure to defend itself and so being called on to approach the court. It is deemed unnecessary that a third party should approach the court on the behalf of the party.
That is something which has been taken into cognizance while proceeding in this direction by the court.
