The exercise to surround the Gehlot government of Rajasthan has intensified. The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has also filed a petition in the Rajasthan High Court against the merger of six MLAs into the Congress. The merger of MLAs has been challenged in the petition filed by BSP General Secretary Satish Mishra.
BSP MLAs Lakhan Singh (Karauli), Rajendra Singh Gudha (Udaipurwati), Deepchand Khedia (Kishangarh Bas), Jogendra Singh Awana (Nadbai), Sandeep Kumar (Tijara) and Wajib Ali (Nagar, Bharatpur) joined the Congress. Mayawati has several times opposed the merger of BSP MLAs with the Congress.
Mayawati said – will not let this issue go
BSP President Mayawati had said yesterday that the BSP could have gone to court even earlier, but we were waiting for the time when Ashok Gehlot and Congress could be taught a lesson. Now we have decided to go to court. We will not let this issue go. Will go to Supreme Court in this case.
Targeting the Gehlot government, BSP President Mayawati said on Tuesday that the Congress had given unconditional support to the state after the elections in Rajasthan, but unfortunately CM Ashok Gehlot merged all our MLAs into his party to harm the BSP. .
BJP MLA has also filed a petition
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Madan Dilawar has also filed a fresh petition in Rajasthan High Court against the merger of BSP MLAs into Congress. Madan Dilawar had also filed a petition earlier in this matter, which was rejected by the High Court on Monday.
Madan Dilawar had demanded that these 6 MLAs be disqualified from membership of the Legislative Assembly under the anti-defection law, but the speaker did not take any action. After this Madan Dilawar reached the High Court. Meanwhile, on 24 July, the speaker disposed of the complaint. Because of this, the application was rejected in the High Court.
