A two-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri and also comprising Justice Ashok Bhushan, issued the notice to Yadav and sought his response within two weeks. The top court also asked the Delhi High Court to adjourn the matter for two weeks.

Ram Chandra Prasad Singh, a leader of the JD(U), had moved the Supreme Court saying that Yadav's disqualification as a Rajya Sabha member was correct as he had formed a new party.

Singh moved the top court challenging the Delhi High Court's order of 11 September which had refused to entertain the petition while observing that JD(U) should argue the case on old facts and not on new facts of Yadav forming a new party.
