Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday has posted the hearing of the petition, challenging the continuation of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in the post following the alleged failure of the collective responsibility of the cabinet in connection with the former transport minister Thomas Chandy, to November 30. A division bench headed by acting Chief Justice Dominic Antony took the decision. The advocate general appeared for the case.

The petition filed by RS Sasikumar, a former member of the Kerala and Cochin Universities, pleaded that a minister filing a case against another and four others staying away from attending the cabinet meeting had created a situation in which the Chief Minister had lost the Constitutional mandate to continue in power. The petitioner cited the observations made by the division bench in the writ petition filed by Thomas Chandy.

 

The petitioner said that the division bench pointed out the failure of collective responsibility of the cabinet as enshrined in the section of 163 and 164 of the Constitution in the verdict of the writ petition of Thomas Chandy.
