Bhopal, Mar 19: Amid a political upheaval in Madhya Pradesh, Assembly Speaker Narmada Prasad Prajapati late Thursday accepted the resignations of 16 rebel Congress lawmakers.
Mr Prajapati himself announced his decision to the media. Earlier on Thursday, the Supreme Court criticised the speaker's action of accepting only six resignations out of 22 sent to him by the rebel Congress MLAs. Political analysts termed the speaker’s hurried action as a face-saving exercise. (UNI)
