NCP to initiate legal action against five defected party MLAs
Itanagar: The Arunachal Pradesh unit of NCP today said that it would initiate legal action against the five NCP MLAs of the state who `defected` to the Congress without informing either the NCP`s high command or the state president.
Following the directive from NCP supremo Sharad Pawar, the state NCP would initiate legal action, party’s state unit president Khafa Bengia said in a statement.
"The Arunachal Pradesh Assembly Speaker is duty bound to act in the matter in light of the precedent set by the Supreme Court`s (SC) verdict to invoke necessary action over the defection of 4 NCP MLAs to Biju Janata Dal in Odhisa," Bengia said.
He informed that he has no option but to fall in line with the directive of the high command and move to Speaker’s Court for invoking necessary action against the defected MLAs.
"Such an order by the Apex Court will prevent the culture of `Aaya Ram Gaya Ram` and repose faith in the wisdom of the public, who elect their leaders on a party symbol and party manifesto for a period of five years," Bengia said.
