In his strict stand against crime, the Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh Government has taken a major step. The Government has now decided to bar jailed MLAs from attending the proceedings of the assembly. The decision taken by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is in sync with the Supreme Court directive.

Confirmation by the State Government

Principal Secretary (Home) of Uttar Pradesh, Arvind Kumar, confirmed the report. Kumar said that the order passed complies with the ruling of Allahabad High Court and the Supreme Court.

“Referring to the order by the Allahabad High Court and the Supreme Court the state government has issued a directive as per which the prosecuting officers must oppose MLAs appeal (to attend the assembly proceedings),” Kumar said.

If we take the present scenario in consideration, there are three lawmakers in jail. They are- Mukhtar Ansari of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Brajesh Singh of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Hariom Yadav of the Samajwadi Party (SP).

Recently, the court barred Ansari from voting for the Rajya Sabha seats. Hari Om Yadav was also denied permission for attending the biennial polls to cast his vote.
