Smt. Anit @ Anita Chaturvedi v. State Of U.P. Thru' Secy. & Others - WRIT - C No. 60037 of 2005  RD-AH 4781 (28 February 2006)
Hon'ble Vineet Saran,J
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner as well as learned Standing Counsel appearing for the State-respondents and Sri Abhay Raj Singh, learned counsel appearing for the contesting respondent no.6. In view of the nature of the order which is being passed, notices to the other private respondents are not being issued. In case the said respondents are so aggrieved, they may file an application for recall/modification/variation of this order.
By means of this writ petition the petitioner has challenged the result of the election of the Gram Pradhan of the Gram Panchayat in question.
Sri Abhay Raj Singh, learned counsel for the contesting respondent no.6 has pointed out to this Court that the petitioner has filed an election petition under section 12 (C) of the U.P. Panchayat Raj Act 1947 which is pending before the Respondent no.2. The said position is not disputed to the learned counsel for the petitioner. However, it is submitted that the election petition may be disposed of expeditiously as the election to the office of Gram Pradhan for a fixed term and in case if the election petition is not decided within a time bound period the petitioner shall suffer irreparable loss.
Having heard learned counsel for the parties and considering the facts and circumstances of this case, this writ petition is finally disposed of with the direction that the Respondent no.2 shall hear and decide the election petition of the petitioner, in accordance with law, after giving opportunity of hearing to the parties as expeditiously as possible, preferably within a period of six months from the date of filing of a certified copy of this order before him, and if necessary, proceed to hear the matter on day-to-day basis.
With the aforesaid observation/direction this writ petition is disposed of. No order as to cost.
