Justice Gyan Sudha Mishra granted the status-quo order till January 11 on a writ petition filed by Rungta challenging the appointment of a nine member ad-hoc commiitee by the government under the recently promulgated sports ordinance.
After heated exchanges between the ad-hoc committee lawyer Nayna Sarraf and Rungta's counsel Paras Kuhad, the court granted the status-quo order giving the ad-hoc commmittee time till Monday to file a reply.
Earlier, the Government appointed ad-hoc committee had superceded the Executive Committee of the RCA.
The ad-hoc body had started functioning and had even withdrawn money from RCA accounts.
Rungta challenged the appoinment of the ad-hoc body and said that it was unlawful to appoint the body without proper notice.
On the other hand, the lawyers for the ad-hoc body said when the sports ordinance was upheld by the High Court the appointment of ad-hoc commitee was also justified.
