U`khand: BJP opposes nomination of Anglo-Indian
BJP on Sunday asked Governor Margaret Alva not to allow the ruling party to nominate an MLA from Anglo-Indian community in the legislative assembly.
Dehradun: With the Congress facing crisis
over the chief ministerial candidate issue in Uttarakhand, BJP
on Sunday asked Governor Margaret Alva not to allow the ruling
party to nominate an MLA from Anglo-Indian community in the
legislative assembly at this stage.
"This is not a healthy tradition to send an Anglo-Indian
to Vidhan Sabha at a time when the state cabinet has not been
formed and all the Congress MLAs have not taken oath," state
BJP chief Bishan Singh Chufal said.
BJP leaders led by Chufal led a party delegation to the
Raj Bhavan to register its protest on the isuue.
Chufal said Congress must prove its majority in the House
before taking any decision on the Anglo-Indian quota.
He said the crisis in Congress was creating hurdles in
the development process in the hill state. After the swearing
in ceremony of Vijay Bahuguna, all the process related to the
cabinet formation has failed to move ahead, Chufal said.
