But eventually the apex court ordered the Calcutta high court to hear complaints from opposition parties after considering the question of whether or not to intervene, the division bench ruled on Monday. On Monday, the single judge bench extended the stay by a day.

The spat between the state election commission and the opposition parties intensified after the watchdog on 9 April issued a notification ordering extension of the deadline for filing nominations by one day, only to rescind it within hours.

BJP workers in Kolkata ahead of panchayat polls. On April 12, Justice Talukdar stayed the election process till April 16 and sought a detailed report from the SEC on measures taken to address the Opposition's concerns.

The court had also asked the state election commission to file a comprehensive status report on the poll process, detailing the number of nominations filed and the percentage of nominations rejected by Monday. The division bench's order has come as a big blow to the ruling party and also the state poll panel. We have always wanted that all Opposition candidates be allowed to file their nominations. "We welcome the verdict", BJP leader Mukul Roy, who defected from Trinamool past year, said outside the court. The respect towards the Indian Constitution has increased only with this order.

Appearing for the Trinamool Congress, the party's Lok Sabha MP Kalyan Banerjee argued that the Supreme Court had earlier declined to interfere because it held that the judiciary "ought" not to do so once the electoral process had started.

The Communist Party of India-Marxist, which had moved the Supreme Court seeking postponement of the election and removal of the SEC but was asked to raise the matter in the High Court, also welcomed the order. Though the Trinamool-led government's lawyer appealed in division bench, the bench has returned the case to single bench of Justice Talukdar.

"This order is not only about whether the BJP's petition is maintainable or not".

Congress leaders observed a day-long fast at Rani Rashmoni Road in Kolkata and shouted slogans against the Mamata Banerjee-led government. "It is filled with controversies and marred by violence", he added.
