Pro tem speaker Shivashankar Reddy on Saturday said that his office was examining the complaint against eight JD(S) MLAs who cross-voted during the recent elections to the Rajya Sabha.

Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru, Reddy said that the Assembly secretariat was in the process of taking legal opinion and action would be taken if needed. The Speaker’s election will be held on Tuesday, a day after the 19-day legislature session begins.

The session will conclude on July 29. Reddy also said that a private bill seeking the abolition of the Legislative Council would be formally withdrawn during the session.
