On Friday, the Supreme Court set aside the Maharashtra Assembly’s resolution to suspend 12 MLAs for alleged unruly behaviour, NDTV reported. According to the rules, an MLA can be suspended from the sessions. However, the 12 MLAs were suspended for a year.

“Suspending the MLAs beyond the sessions is unconstitutional and illegal,” the court said.
