Shimla, June 22
After the unfolding of a political drama of the alleged poaching of Shiv Sena and Independent MLAs in Maharashtra, the rulling BJP in Himachal Pradesh has decided to set its house in order. They perhaps have decided to keep a vigil on party MLAs and MPs and are holding the party legislative party meeting immediately and in Chandigarh.
A notification issued by the office of the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Government of Himachal Pradesh, said that it is calling an urgent meeting of the BJP legislature party at Chandigarh tomorrow. In the notification Minister is quoted as saying that all MLA are informed that the meeting of BJP Legislature Party under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur will be held on June 23, 2022, at 3-00 pm in Himachal Bhawan, Chandigarh. The party, recently ignoring the probability of bickering among Prem Kumar Dhumal camp, has given membership to two Independent MLA publically. However, they couldn’t be part of this meeting as it could cost them membership on the ground of anti-defaction law.
Moreover, there is also a monsoon session pending of this 13th legislative assembly, and the two Independent MLAs who are not with treasury benches defecto have to sit on opposition benches. Yet, they are being included in the BJP to increase the number of votes for the President’s Election.
Moreover, it may be expected that 35 MLAs of the ruling party, including some ministers may not get tickets or are being indicated by the party to be prepared for the outcome. This may create defection during president Election.
It was the first time when the ruling party invited the BJP legislative meeting outside Himachal Pradesh. Chandigarh happens to be the Union territory ,and the police comes under Home Ministry.
