Four of the six BSP MLAs who switched sides to the Congress in Rajasthan reached Delhi on Wednesday over the anti-defection case pending before the Supreme Court. MLA Wajib Ali, who is among the MLAs, confirmed that they were going to Delhi.
He said he would discuss with the lawyers and seek their opinion on how to present their case before the Supreme Court, which has sought response from the six MLAs under the anti-defection law. Asked whether he would meet the Congress high command, including party leader Rahul Gandhi, Ali said it was too early to comment on it.
MLAs Rajendra Gudha, Lakhan Singh and Sandeep Yadav and Ali have reached Delhi. Another MLA Joginder Awana will reach the national capital on Thursday. However, MLA Deepchand Kharia will not travel to Delhi due to health reasons. He had won the 2018 assembly elections on a BSP ticket. However, he left the BSP and joined the Congress in September 2019, which has been challenged in the Supreme Court under the anti-defection law.
The Supreme Court had recently asked these MLAs to file their final reply in the matter.
