Defection case: HC notice to Ajit Jogi, 12 others

Last Updated: Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 20:48

Bilaspur: The Chhattisgarh High Court has
issued notices to former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi and twelve
MLAs who had quit BJP.

In 2001, when Jogi was the Chief Minister, Tarun
Chatterjee, Paresh Bagbahara, Madan Singh Dahriya, Shukrajit
Nayak and eight others had quit BJP and formed Chhattisgarh
Vikas Party.

Erstwhile assembly speaker Rajendra Prasad Shukl granted
recognition to the outfit under the Constitution.
All of them joined Congress the very next day. This was
challenged, but the speaker turned down the objection.

Consequently, in 2003, the then leader of opposition Nand
Kumar Sai (BJP) moved HC against the speaker`s decision.

Justice Satish Agnihotri of High Court yesterday heard
the matter and issued notices to Jogi and the 12 MLAs.
