Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Lokayuta Justice NK Mehrotra has sent a "special recommendation" to Governor Ram Naik for disqualification of two MLAs belonging to BJP and BSP.

The major allegation against Uma Shanker Singh of BSP and Bajrang Bahadur Singh of BJP is that they are still taking government contracts, Mehrotra said.

"I have sent a special recommendation to the Governor requesting him that the Election Commission is not giving any advice, therefore, he should take action and decide," he told a news agency.

"If not satisfied with my report, they should table it in the Assembly. The decision has to be taken by the Governor," he added.

The Lokayuta said that he initially sent the report in February to the Chief Minister, which was later forwarded to the Governor.
