The Supreme Court today dismissed a plea for issuance of a direction to the poll panel to decide on a representation seeking to bar AIADMK General Secretary V K Sasikala from heading the party after her conviction and imprisonment in a disproportionate assets case.

The bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar refused to entertain the plea filed by Aam Aadmi Party leader S A N Vasigaran from Tamil Nadu alleging that Sasikala heading the party was in violation of provisions of the Representation of the People Act.

“It cannot be done because this is not a public office.

This is not an elected office which she is holding. Sorry declined,” the bench, also comprising Justice D Y Chandrachud, said.

Sasikala, who was convicted by the apex court in the disproportionate assets case, has been lodged at Bengaluru’s Parappana Agrahara prison since February.
