A bench comprising Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justices Hima Kohli and JB Pardiwala rejected the plea for an urgent listing of the case sought on the grounds that three “minor amendments” to the draft constitution are due to be decided ahead of the polls .

“The election for office bearers (of the IOA) will begin on December 10. There have been three minor amendments to the constitution prepared by former Supreme Court Justice Judge L Nageswara Rao. The hearing is necessary to hear the issue related to amendments to the constitution,” said a lawyer.
