Case against Panneerselvam’s appointment as deputy CM dismissed

   CHENNAI, SEPTEMBER 8TH 

The Madras High Court on Friday dismissed a writ of quo warranto calling upon   Deputy CM O Paneerselvam    to show cause under what power of law was he holding the office since the Constitution does not consider such a post and provide for an individual to take oath of office as Deputy CM.

The first Division Bench of Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice M. Sundar rejected the case by relying upon a Supreme Court judgement in a similar case. It pointed out the Bombay High Court too had followed the apex court judgement in Gopinath Munde's case.

Chennai-based advocate V. Elangovan had filed the case.
