WTH, Why are they involving court in everything. Constitution does have a provision for that. It can be wrong on other grounds but constitutionally it is not wrong and actually quite normal in coalition governments. Even in UK, Nick Clegg (Lib Dem) is Deputy PM. No one went to courts on that.... People have so many other problems, please concentrate on real ones, these fake problems are just adding to people's frustration.

But we don't have a great economy like Britain to bear expenses of a deputy prime minister...... In Britain, their rulers are not given royal protocols and facilities, but here they are treated like kings on the expense of poor poor nation.... It's a clear injustice and it should be considered a violation of human rights.... Our poor people are living their lives under poverty lines and even then we have to bear extra ordinary expenses of these 'Deputy Prime minister' when he is doing nothing at all...
