Disqualify AAP MLAs who have resigned: Majithia


Disqualify AAP MLAs who have resigned: Majithia

Chandigarh, August 9

The SAD today said the Constitution as well as the Representation of Peoples Act was being “violated” in the state with four legislators, who had resigned from the primary membership of AAP months ago, not being disqualified and debarred from contesting elections for the remaining term of the Vidhan Sabha.

Addressing a press conference here, former minister Bikram Singh Majithia said the 10th schedule of the Constitution said “a member of a House belonging to any political party shall be disqualified for being a member of the House if he has voluntarily given up his membership of such a party”.

He said since all four MLAs had resigned as primary members of AAP, the constitutional provision was being “subverted”. Majithia said three legislators — Sukhpal Singh Khaira, representing Bholath segment, Nazar Singh Manshahia from Mansa and Master Baldev Singh from Jaito had resigned from AAP in January, while Amarjit Singh Sandoa had resigned in May. He said Khaira and Baldev Singh had formed Punjabi Ekta Party, while Manshahia and Sandoa had joined the Congress. — TNS
