State to file review petition in MLAs' case

Though the State government respects the judgment delivered by the Supreme Court with regard to the disqualification of 16 MLAs, certain aspects of the ruling remains unacceptable. Hence a review petition will be filed, he said.

Standing by Speaker K G Bopaiah, Suresh Kumar said he had taken the decision based on the quasi-judicial authority vested in him.

Lauding the Centre’s decision of rejecting Governor H R Bhardwaj’s report seeking suspension of the BJP government, the minister said the UPA led government in the Centre has sent out a right signal to the nation underlining the importance of democracy.

Moreover, the MLAs in the Opposition parties - Congress and the JD(S) - were unhappy about hurdles posed by their parties in the path of development and have expressed their desire to join the BJP, Suresh Kumar said.
