Supreme Court disposes of Congress MP Sushmita Dev’s petition against Modi and Shah, saying it has become pointless

As the request of the original petition was already fulfilled, the petition had become infructuous or pointless, hence the same was disposed of by the court.

The Supreme Court of India has dismissed a petition filed by Congress MP Sushmita Dev seeking action against PM Narendra Modi and BJP Amit Shah for their comments made during the election campaign. The MP from Assam had petitioned the apex court to issue a direction to the Election Commission of India to take action against the BJP leaders.

The Congress petition had objected to EC giving clean chit to the BJP leaders against allegations filed against them, and had asked that SC should order EC to revise its decision. But the Supreme Court said that if the petitioner wants to challenge the decision of EC, then a separate independent petition will have to be filed.

The All India Mahila Congress President had filed a plea in the Supreme Court in 29th April, requesting the apex court to instruct the poll panel to expedite the complaints against the BJP leaders which were pending. She had alleged that the EC was sitting on the complaints against BJP top leaders. After that, the Supreme Court had issued a notice to the Election Commission to act on the complaints filed against Modi and Shah, while saying that the EC can pass any order they want.

Subsequently, the poll panel has taken up the complaints against Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, dismissing most of them saying they do not violate the model code of conduct. In that scenario, Sushmita Dev had filed an additional affidavit in the case at the SC seeking revision of the EC decisions.

The bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and justice Deepak Gupta said that the original plea was for the disposal of complaints against Modi and Shah, and the EC has already concluded. The bench also noted that the orders of the EC were not challenged in the additional affidavit. As the request of the original petition was already fulfilled, the petition had become infructuous or pointless, hence the same was disposed of by the court.
