Meanwhile, Jose K Mani filed a caveat petition demanding SC to hear their side before issuing an interim order.

New Delhi: The Kerala Congress (M) P J Joseph faction has moved Supreme Court challenging the Kerala High Court order allotting the party symbol of two leaves to Jose K Mani faction. In the petition, they demanded a stay on the HC order.

Meanwhile, Jose K Mani filed a caveat petition demanding SC to hear their side before issuing an interim order.

PC Kuriakose has filed the petition on behalf of Joseph faction. The HC order that upheld the decision of the Election Commission of India should be cancelled and a stay should be issued on the HC order for time being, he urged.

The Joseph faction had begun efforts to bring the petition into SC’s consideration before the Assembly election notification. They evaluate that if SC stays the HC order, Jose K Mani faction candidates can be blocked from contesting in the two leaves symbol.

Senior lawyers who are experts in constitution will appear for Joseph faction. Jose had held discussions with senior advocate Krishnan Venugopal, son of Attorney General KK Venugopal, while he was in Delhi last time.
