BHOPAL, MAR 14 (IANS) | Publish Date: 3/14/2020 12:19:22 PM IST

Madhya Pradesh Assembly Speaker NP Prajapati Saturday terminated the membership of Tulsiram Silawat, PS Tomar, GS Rajput, Mahendra Singh Sisodia, Imarti Devi and Prabhuram Chaudhary from the House.

Earlier, the Governor had removed them from the ministry on the advice of the Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Friday. The Speaker said that he had called the six MLAs to meet him personally for verification of the resignations. Since they have not reported to him so far their membership has been terminated.

The strength of the House is now reduced from 228 to 222. The Congress strength in the House will now be reduced to 108 and with the support of four independents and two BSP and one SP MLAs. Congress still has a majority in the House while the BJP with 107 will have to wait to get there.

Experts consider it to be a masterstroke as it would send a strong message to the MLAs who have grossly underestimating the gravity of the matter. The fence sitters who still don’t wish to all the way by joining the BJP may be losing their membership and indirectly be benefiting the BJP earn the majority at their expense.

Whip issued: Amid the political drama, Congress issued a whip to its MLAs to be present in the Assembly during the session starting from March 16.
