Cuttack : The Orissa High Court has passed orders not to revoke the spouse card issued in favour of Kendrapara MP Anubhav Mohanty’s wife Barsha Priyadarshini by the Parliament.
Hearing a petition filed by Barsha, objecting withdrawal of the Spouse Identity Card issued by the Parliament, a division bench of the Orissa High Court said that the card will be preserved with Barsha.
After the marital discord between the duo, Kendrapara MP Anubhav Mohanty asked the Lok Sabha Secretary-General to cancel Barsha’s spouse identity card.
Acting on it, the Lok Sabha Secretariat had written a letter to Barsha Priyadarshini regarding cancellation of the card and asked her to return the Identity Card issued as the spouse of the MP.
The Lok Sabha Secretariat had issued memo to surrender the identity card at the Centralised Pass Issue Cell (CPIC) of the Parliament on or before December 2021.
