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.
