These Congress and Leftist politicians are jokers – they started out to humiliate Amitabh Bacchan and Amar Singh by targetting Jaya Bachhan… and instead have fallen flat on their faces! And btw, this “holier-than-thou” EC folks – what the “eff” were they upto now??? How come 10 CPM MPs come to the parliament AGAINST THE LAW?? Heck even the speaker of the Lok Sabha is tainted!!
With disqualification petitions flooding it, the Election Commission is gearing itself to handle the fallout of the controversy over the office of profit and BJP-led NDA’s battle against one of the Election Commissioners Navin Chawla.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s action of resigning her Lok Sabha seat may have made the petitions for her disqualification infructuous but the complaints against the other incumbent MPs, the most high profile of which Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee, are still alive and are hanging as the sword of damocles over their head.
The Commission has already taken notice of the petitions received against 10 CPI(M) MPs, including the Speaker, and others and in most of the cases it has sought more information from the petitions because “details were lacking”, sources said.
