Aurangabad, Maharashtra: Maharashtra Rural Development and Women and Child Welfare Minister Pankaja Munde Palve once again granted stay order on Saturday on Aurangabad Bench of Bombay High Court's order uphelding Beed District Collector action of disqualifying six NCP members of Beed Zilla Parishad who had voted against party candidate in Zilla Parisha President's election.

On May 4, the HC bench had upheld the order of District collector which was stayed by Munde earlier by using her power. However, it was challenged by the NCP District President Bajrang Sonawane in HC.

During the hearing of the case, the court observed that Munde's order was "bad in law" and against "arbitrary and natural ethics''.

Once again all the ZP members appeared before the minister and hearing was held in which Ms Munde again granted stay to the HC order of May 4 enabling six debarred members to participate in MLC election to cast their votes on May 21.

Munde sent communication to district collector in this regards. The members are Shivaji Pawar, Prakash Kavtejar, Ashwini Jarange, Aswini Nimbalkar, Sangita Maharnur and Mangala Doifode, who belonged to the Suresh Dhas and Jaydatta Kshirsagar groups.
