The Supreme Court has sought responses from the Bengal government, the State Election Commission and the Calcutta Municipal Corporation on a petition assailing the Calcutta High Court order upholding the state’s decision to postpone the municipal elections and form a board to function instead after the expiry of the five-year term of the councillors in May 2020.

A bench of Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Justice Anirudh Bose and Justice Krishna Kumar had on Monday issued notice on the appeal filed by Pratap Banerjee, challenging the high court’s order passed on August 25, which had agreed with the state’s contention that the present situation because of Covid was not conducive to holding elections.
