Sandeep : According to para 6 of X Schedule of the Constitution of India if any question arises as to whether a member of a House has become subject to disqualification under the Schedule, the question shall be referred for the decision of Chairman or Speaker of such House and his decision shall be final.
Para 7 of the Schedule provided that no court shall have any jurisdiction in respect of any matter connected with the disqualification of member of a House. This para had been struck down by Supreme Court in Kihoto Hollohon v. Zachilhi (1992). Therefore, the decision of Chairman or Speaker is now subject to judicia review. Circumstances given under option (b) and (c) are covered by para 2(3) an para 2(2) respectively and hence those will attract disqualification.
