Bengaluru: Karnataka High Court on Wednesday September 20 adjourned the hearing of petitions challenging the reservation list announced for the 243 wards of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to September 27.

On September 22, the State Election Commission was supposed to provide the related final voters’ list. However, the court was informed that the new announcement date was September 29.

A group of petitions challenging the delineation of wards had already been dismissed by Justice Hemanth Chandanagoudar.

He asked the Election Commission’s advocate on September 21 about the rationale for reserving all wards in an Assembly constituency limit for women. The EC was directed to present its arguments on the following hearing date.

126 of the 243 wards are reserved only for women. Out of the total, 81 seats-28 for SCs and four for STs- are set aside for backward classes.
