Observing that there seemed to a lot of confusion, conjectures and misinterpretation doing the rounds in the minds of the public with regard to its appeal for adjournment of case in the Supreme Court, the Nagaland Senior Government Employees’ Welfare Association (NSGEWA) today clarified that it had sought for adjournment in order to let Regular Court work out disposal of its petition early. Clarifying its position, the NSGEWA press secretary Medoselhou, in a statement, said the association had filed special leave petition in the Supreme Court and it was to be heard through regular court. However, on February 9, the case came up for hearing by a constituted court viz. miscellaneous court item No.5, and not as listed at Sl.NO.6 due on January 19 last. Explaining that miscellaneous court and or special court were irregular court set up by the Supreme Court from time to time, depending on needs, the NSGEWA said regular courts were standing courts to take up cases that were admitted in the Apex Court on regular basis. In the event of unfinished cases by such courts, the association said the time for next hearing was uncertain as it required special constitution of bench. Further, stating that NSGEWA having eagerly looking for early disposal of its petition, Medoselhou said it preferred adjournment to avoid half hearing by the special court and wait indefinitely for the next hearing.
