HYDERABAD: The BJP State unit has demanded that Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee expel the MPs who indulged in cross voting in the trust vote in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday.

The UPA coalition lost the vote on moral grounds and several moral and ethical questions are being raised on the trust vote. Stringent action should be initiated against those who indulged in bribing the MPs or else there is every possibility of such incident recurring, he said.

“The trust vote was bought, not won. It is a black spot on parliamentary democracy and the Speaker should make public the names of those who indulged in the deals that went behind the screen,” BJP State president Bandaru Dattatreya said.
