Whether court can pass any order which has the effect of postponing of the election?

 Besides, as indicated by us in the order dated March 30,1982, the view which we took was that though the High Court was justified in entertaining the writ petition and issuing a rule therein since, the writ petition apparently contained a challenge to several provisions of Election laws, it was not justified in passing any order which would have the effect of postponing the elections which were then imminent.
