Merger of 12 Congress MLAs with TRS: Acharya
New Delhi: Policenama Online : The merger of 12 Congress MLAs in Telangana with the TRS and the merger of four TDP Rajya Sabha members with the BJP are “illegal” as they violate the law, said former Lok Sabha Secretary General P.D.T. Acharya.
In an interview to Karan Thapar, Acharya said: “Yes, the merger of the 12 Congress MLAs in Telangana with the TRS and the merger of the four TDP Rajya Sabha MPs with the BJP are illegal as they are not in accordance with the law.”
He said the so-called mergers were “certainly illegal” and not in accordance with the 10th schedule of the Constitution.
He said that for a merger, a party has to merge with another political party and its MLAs or MPs have to agree to the merger.
