Justice Rajan Roy and Justice N.K. Johri, while hearing the petition, said that the matter was beyond their jurisdiction. They said the matter could be heard by the Allahabad High Court and not the Lucknow bench because Rampur came within the jurisdiction of the Allahabad High Court.
They further said that the writ petition itself was not maintainable and only an election petition can be moved in the case.
