Another bench of the Delhi High Court today recused from hearing Madhya Pradesh minister Narottam Mishra’s plea against an Election Commission (EC) order disqualifying him on charges of paid news.

The matter was listed before a bench of justices Sanjiv Khanna and Navin Chawla, one of whom recused from hearing the BJP leader’s petition. No reasons were given.

Yesterday, another bench of the high court had recused from hearing the matter.

The Supreme Court on July 28 had kept in abeyance the poll panel’s June 23 order disqualifying Mishra and had requested the Delhi High Court to expeditiously hear his appeal preferably within two weeks.

The high court had on July 16 dismissed Mishra’s plea for an interim stay of its single judge July 14 order, upholding the EC’s decision disqualifying him on the charges of paid news.
