Taking note of the submission of the petitioner that an MLA and his family members have been using the siren since 2017, the Bench of Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice Narayan Singh Dhanik observed thus:

"...no Public Interest Litigation has been filed the petitioner for the last four years. It is only when the election season has started that a Public Interest Litigation has been filed targeting a sitting MLA."

Therefore, the Court added, obviously, this Public Interest Litigation is highly motivated by political consideration that tantamounts to the abuse of the process of the law, and the process of the Court.
