During the hearing, when some parties sought to defer the matter, Justice Gupta slammed the petitioner and said no forum shopping will be allowed. “You wanted urgent listing and now you want the hearing adjourned. We will not allow this,” the bench said.

The Supreme Court fixed the matter for further hearing to September 5. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Karnataka government, said let the court issue notice as all the parties are here present.
