No major threat to EPS govt seen
The Madras High Court will deliver its judgement today on the case involving the order of the TN Assembly Speaker Dhanapal disqualifying 18 MLAs of the ruling ADMK who had delivered a letter to the Governor expressing their desire to have the CM removed and select someone else in place of Edapadi Palaniswami.
The case was argued on behalf of both the parties by high profile SC lawyers like Abhshek Manu Singhvi, Kapil Sibal and others but the HC reserved the judgement after hearing the arguments. It is being delivered after 5 months.
The general expectation among the legal and political circles is that whichever way the judgement goes, the EPS government may not come under any immediate threat. One reason is the losing party will go to the Supreme Court and also that no MLA, from any political party wants to go back to the people for elections.
But the attention of the state and national media will stay riveted on the HC judgement.
