Proceedings against three JD(U) MPs withdrawn

Parliamentary proceedings against three JD(U) MPs of Lok Sabha facing charges under anti-defection law have been withdrawn by Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar following a request by the party.



New Delhi: Parliamentary proceedings against three JD(U) MPs of Lok Sabha facing charges under anti-defection law have been withdrawn by Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar following a request by the party.

Accepting JD(U)`s request withdrawing its complaint against the MPs - Rajiv Ranjan Singh `Lalan`, Sushil Singh and Mangni Lal Mandal, Kumar on Thursday dropped the proceedings against them.

In a letter to JD(U) Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha Ranjan Prasad Yadav, joint secretary, Lok Sabha Secretariat, V R Ramesh informed him that the Speaker has "acceded to your request to withdraw the petition filed by you under 10th schedule of the Constitution (Anti-defection Law) against Rajiv Ranjan Singh `Lalan`, Sushil Singh and Mangni Lal Mandal."
Yadav had written the letter to the Speaker on June 22 requesting for withdrawing the earlier petition filed by JD(U) seeking the disqualification of three MPs on the charges of anti-party activities.

The JD-U`s decision came against the backdrop of changed political equations after it parted ways with BJP-led NDA.

Rajiv Ranjan Singh `Lalan` belongs to influential Bhumihar caste and was the state president of JD(U) before he fell out with Nitish Kumar.
