SC Issues Stay Order ; Jogesh Singh To Continue As MLA

Bhubaneswar: Coming as a big relief for Odisha Congress, the Supreme Court today issued stay order on the Orissa High Court's decision to dismiss its  MLA Jogesh Singh from the Sundargarh Assembly Constituency.

With the SC's stay order, Jogesh Singh will continue as the MLA of Sundergarh.

'Since the High Court had cancelled the election of Jogesh Singh as Sundergarh MLA citing unavailability of evidence in support of his scheduled tribe (ST) caste status, a bench comprising Justice AK Sikri and Ashok Bhusan of the Supreme Court stated the judgment as unlawful and issued a stay order,' Jogesh's counsel Pitambar Acharya said.
