LEADER OF Opposition in the Vidhan Sabha and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) veteran Lalji Tandon demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav today in the wake of the High Court judgement on defection by 40 BSP legislators.

The Chief Minister had established a unique record and had introduced a new tradition by bringing a confidence motion in the House in every session without any reason, he said.

Talking to reporters here, Tandon said the existing political situation was that of instability and the only way to have a stable government was dissolution of the House and fresh elections.

The entire Opposition was united against the Mulayam Government and this was evident by the Opposition’s walkout in the Vidhan Sabha at the time of voting on the confidence motion, Tandon added.Tandon said that the BJP would bring a no confidence motion only when it had the required number of members in the House.

Meanwhile, a BJP delegation led by Lalji Tandon met Governor TV Rajeswar late this evening and urged him to dismiss the State Government if Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav failed to resign in the wake of today’s high court verdict.

Tandon told the Governor that the status of the 40 defected MLAs had changed after the high court judgement and now the rebels were part of the BSP team.

This, he said, had made the Mulayam Government a minority one and it had no right to continue in power.

Tandon told the Governor that the only was out was the dismissal of the Mulayam Government and fresh elections.
