Mulayam Govt wins trust vote in UP
The Mulayam Singh Yadav Government on Tuesday won the confidence vote in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.
In a pre-emptive move, Yadav tabled the confidence motion before the Allahabad High Court verdict setting aside the recognition of 40 deserting BSP MLAs, who subsequently joined the ruling Samajwadi Party.
Sources said the leader received 207 votes in favour.
While the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) staged a walkout from the assembly, Congress said it does not recognise the vote of confidence.
Earlier, the Allahabad High Court had set aside previous Assembly Speaker Kesri Nath Tripathi's decision to grant recognition to a group of 40 BSP MLAs, who subsequently joined the ruling Samajwadi Party.
