Shillong, Nov 29 (UNI) Meghalaya’s opposition Congress on Monday submitted a petition to Speaker Metbah Lyngdoh seeking disqualification of the 12 Congress legislators membership in the House under the anti-defection law as they have recently “merged” with the Trinamool Congress (TMC).
“I have received a petition from the Congress seeking disqualification of the 12 legislators saying that their defection attracts disqualification under the 10th Schedule,” the Speaker said.
Metbah, however, said that he would have to go through the petition.
