The Congress government has asked the Supreme Court to quash the verdicts of the Maharashtra and Haryana High Courts.
The apex court on Friday refused to lift a ban on the RSS-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government’s plans to hold a state poll in Uttar Pradesh.
In its interim order, the apex court sought directions from the court for the parties to “immediately file their replies to the charges” against them.
The Congress has said the ban was based on “illegal, illegal and baseless” statements by the ruling government.
The court has already said it will take up the matter in April 2019.
The BJP, on its part, has asked for “immediate clarification” on the court’s order.
“We want the court to make clear the verdict is null and void, and it is not binding on the state government,” party spokesperson Shashank Joshi said.
The verdict in the cases was passed in March 2018.
The government has said it would seek a stay on the verdict, and the Centre has sought to “stop” the ruling.
