Mayawati Suspends 7 Rebel MLAs

(New Delhi) BSP Leader Mayawati Suspends 7 Rebel MLAs
Rebel MLAs had opposed the nomination of BSP’s official candidate Ramji Gautam for the elections to the Rajya Sabha.
Mayawati also said that to ensure defeat of Samajwadi Party candidates in future MLC elections, her party will vote for BJP or any other party’s candidate.
The former UP chief minister said as soon as the rebel MLAs join any party, the BSP would take action against them under the anti-defection law.
In a jolt to the BSP on Wednesday, six party MLAs reportedly met Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and later threw hints that they may switch sides.
Four of the group of rebels also filed an affidavit, saying their signatures on the party candidate Gautam’s nomination for the Rajya Sabha polls had been forged .
