UML leaders Som Prasad Pandey and Sharada Devi Bhatta on September 8 had moved the SC seeking an interim order on the action taken by the Election Commission against them.

In the writ, they have argued that the EC did not approve their applications even though they filed the applications on time to join the Unified Socialist.
