The Supreme Court has rejected issuing an interim order on the writ petition demanding nullification of unity of the Janata Samajwadi Party.

A joint bench of justices Dr. Ananda Mohan Bhattarai and Sushmalata Mathema on Monday rejected the demand for issuing interim order as per the writ petition seeking nullification of the unity between the then Rastriya Janata Party and Samajwadi Party and the formation of the JSP. The petition was filed in the apex court by Raj Kumar Thapa. On July 14, the single bench of Justice Kumar Regmi had sought the written response from the respondents of the case and had called both the parties for further discussion on whether to issue interim order as demanded by the petitioner.
