Nagaland Chief Minister TR Zeliang filed yet another petition seeking disqualification of ten NPF MLAs alleging their failure to toe on the party lines.
These include Kiyanilie Peseyie, Y. Vikheho Swu, Chotisuh Sazo, Kuzholuzo Nienu, Yitachu, C.L John, N. Thongwang Konyak, P. Longon, R. Tohanba and R. Torechu; who had acted contrary to the direction issued by Zeliang on July 19 as the party Whip.
The petition was filed before the Speaker of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly as prescribed by the Members of Nagaland Legislative Assembly (Disqualification on Ground of Defection) Rules, 2003.
Zeliang had earlier, filed a composite Disqualification Petition against the above 10 MLAs seeking disqualification under Paragraph 2(1)(b) of the Tenth Schedule which was necessitated as the 10 NPF MLAs had violated the Whip as well as the communication and were absent from the sitting of the House held on July 19.
