“This is the first time after the country’s Independence that three Independents have resigned. They are free to extend their support to any political party, they could have supported the BJP if not the Congress,” he said, adding, “It’s a big question that three Independent MLAs were elected for a term of five years and they resigned midway. It’s also a question of whether they will now contest elections and want to be MLAs for another three years,” he said.

“Allotting tickets to them is an internal matter of the BJP. It will not be known in the coming time whether these three Independents will contest the elections or not. Those Independents who resigned should have become saint or else have bid adieu to politics, but they did not do so, they sold their membership,” said Sukhu.
