Giving relief to expelled Samajwadi Party MPs Amar Singh and Jaya Prada, the Supreme Court on Monday directed that no action shall be taken against under the Anti-Defection Law in the event of their defying a party whip.

A bench headed by Altamas Kabir passed the order while referring to a larger Constitution bench the question as to whether an expelled member could be disqualified under the law, if he chooses to defy a party whip.

Both Singh and Jaya Prada had sought interim stay on any possible action against them in case they decided to vote in favour of Women's Reservation Bill, which the SP is fiercely opposed to.
