Earlier after news of BSP’s MLA Merger in Congress in Rajasthan. BJP MLA Madan Dilawar filed a petition against it in Rajasthan High Court.
The petition was against merger of 6 BSP MLAs with Congress and challenging the inaction of the Assembly Speaker in not deciding on his plea seeking disqualification of the BSP legislators
ON Sunday, BJP Lawmaker said no action was concluded on his petition on March 16 for disqualification of the BSP MLAs.
Sandeep Yadav, Wajib Ali, Deepchand Kheria, Lakhan Meena, Jogendra Awana and Rajendra Gudha who won the 2018 assembly elections on BSP tickets applied for merger as a gaggle with the Congress on September 16 last year. Two days later, the Speaker passed an order declaring that the six MLAs are going to be treated as a part of the Congress.
There was more twist within the ongoing political drama in Rajasthan on Sunday with the BSP issuing a whip to the six MLAs to vote against the ruling party within the state just in case of a trust motion within the Assembly.
The merger had boosted the Ashok Gehlot-led government taking the Congress’ tally to 107 members during a House of 200.
