The Supreme Court has stayed a Bombay High Court Judgement which had cancelled the ” wrong caste Certificate “obtained by Amravati MP Navneet Kaur-Rana.
Since Kaur-Rana, an Independent candidate, had won from a constituency which was reserved for members of the Scheduled Caste community, the Bombay HC order meant that she was in danger of losing her seat. Kaur-Rana’s certificate stated that she was a member of the ‘Mochi’ community.
But a vacation bench of Justices Vineet Saran and Dinesh Maheshwari stayed the operation of the High Court judgment on Tuesday and issued notice on the special leave petition filed by her against the HC judgment, the Live Law reported.
