Naidu rejects criticism of Sharad disqualification decision

06 December 2017

On Wednesday, Arvind Kejriwal stated the disqualification of Sharad Yadav as illegal and unconstitutional.

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu, who is also the Rajya Sabha Chairman, on Monday disqualified rebel Janata Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar as members of the upper house of Parliament, party leader R.C.P. Singh said. The first setback for Sharad Yadav has emerged in 2014 when he lost the Lok Sabha elections.

Yadav had also questioned his removal as Leader of JD (U) in Rajya Sabha and the legal and moral authority of K.C. Tyagi, Secretary-General of JD (U) to issue him a directive not to attend the rally called by RJD.

In the order given by the Rajya Sabha Chairman, Naidu said that Yadav and Anwar have voluntarily given up their membership of JD (U) and that they had been elected to the Rajya Sabha on the basis of their membership to the party. Yadav and Ali Anwar had declared Nitish's decision as a "betrayal of the mandate given to the Mahagathbandhan by the people of Bihar" and vowed to fight against the chief minister's autocratic style of functioning.

"Yesterday, I passed an order on disqualification within three months and then I gave the strong opinion at the end saying such decisions should be decided in around three months because the disqualifications (plea) itself that have been filed, some of them are pending for years", Naidu said.
