The text of the order indicates that after passing necessary directions about exchange of pleadings, the matters were to be listed on 20.05.2019 for consideration.
Mr. Gopal Sankaranarayanan, learned Senior Advocate appearing for the petitioners submitted that since then an application for vacating the order of stay granted by the High Court was filed by the Manipur Public Service Commission and said application is still pending consideration before the High Court.
“In view of the fact that the present special leave petitions arise out of an interim order and that there is unexplained delay of 209 days’ delay, we dismiss these special leave petitions on the ground of delay”, the SC order says.
