Gauhati HC adjourns hearing on Naga Women’s PIL

Kohima: The Kohima Bench of Guwahati High Court has ‘adjourned’ the hearing on the Women’s Reservation Bill, in Nagaland, to September 27 next.

According to sources here on Thursday, the high court ‘adjourned’ the hearing owing to some technical issues that had cropped up.

Earlier, the court had heard the writ petition about the 33 per cent reservation for women in civic bodies and had scheduled September 7 as the date for hearing.

The first hearing was held on July 15 last and the second on July 25 last.

On June 24, the bench admitted the writ petition filed by a ‘Joint Action Committee’ of the Naga Mothers’ Association (NMA). The NMA had sought the court’s action as the Nagaland State Government was not implementing Women’s Reservation Bill passed by Nagaland Legislative Assembly. (UNI)
