BJP to seek disqualification of MLAs for anti-party activities
Bangalore: Launching a counter attack on the 13 party MLAs who have announced their decision to quit their assembly membership, the ruling BJP on Monday decided to seek their disqualification for `anti-party` activities.
Sources in the BJP said a petition would be filed today with the Assembly Speaker KG Bopahiah, seeking their disqualification on the charge of `anti-party` activities.
They said the BJP would also urge the Speaker not to accept the resignation of the 13 MLAs.
The MLAs loyal to Karnataka Janata Party chief and former BJP strongman B S Yeddyurappa are likely to meet the Speaker tomorrow to submit their resignation letters.
