Transport Bus Association v. State Of U.P. & Others - WRIT - C No. 17474 of 2007  RD-AH 6296 (5 April 2007)
Hon. Anjani Kumar, J.
Hon. Dilip Gupta, J.
The Transport Bus Association has filed this petition for a direction upon the respondents to requisition only 50% of its buses for forthcoming Assembly Elections.
The petitioner could not place before us any provision under The Representation of People Act, 1951 to support his contention. On the other hand, Section 160 of the aforesaid Act clearly empowers the authority to requisition the vehicles. In this view of the matter this relief cannot be granted.
The other relief claimed in the petition is for a direction upon the respondents to make payment for the requisitioned buses in respect of the Elections held in the year 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006.
We are of the opinion that the petitioner may approach the appropriate forum for this relief.
The writ petition is, accordingly, dismissed.
