issued notices to four BJP legislators to explain how they
formed a separate group in Jammu and Kashmir Assembly.
"The 6 (suspended) MLAs petitioned me that four

Assembly. I enclosed my letter (notice) along with the
petition and have sent it to all four MLAS to explain their
position," Prof Gupta said.
"I have told them to explain their position within two
days of receipt of my letter. If they don`t respond, I will
take it that they have to nothing to say. So in that case
I will take action," Gupta, who along with 6 other BJP MLAs,

11 members. Speaker still considers me the leader. Speaker has
turned down their (by four MLAs) application for choosing
Jugal Sharma as party leader," he said.
