The Supreme Court Monday stayed disqualification proceedings against two MLAs, who were served notice by the Assembly Speaker for allegedly indulging in "anti-party" activities.

The notices were served under the anti-defection law.

A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Deepka Gupta also issued notices on the plea filed by two MLAs V T Kalaiselvan and E Rathinasabapathy.

"Notice. Stay of proceedings," the bench said.

On April 30, A Prabhu (Kallakurichi), Kalaiselvan (Vriddhachalam) and E Rathinasabapathy (Aranthangi) were served notices by Assembly Speaker P Dhanapal, seeking an explanation for allegedly siding with Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK) leader TTV Dhinakaran.

Out of the three MLAs, two lawmakers have approached the Supreme Court challenging the notice served to them.
