The petition filed by advocate Ashok Pandey was dismissed by Justice PK Jaiswal and Justice DK Singh.

In its recent order, the bench said that the naming of a district comes under the powers of the Legislature under the Constitutional Scheme and hence it cannot interfere in the issue. The High Court, however, barred the petitioner from paying the price of filing an ‘unnecessary’ petition, saying that he was an advocate of the same court.
