Around 4.40pm, law minister PC Sharma tabled the CrPC (MP Amendment) Bill, 2019. BJP was keen to hold a discussion on farmers after this bill was passed, so Bhargava announced BJP’s support and said that no debate without passing away.
Suddenly, BSP MLA Sanjeev Singh – who supports the Congress government from outside – said he opposes the bill and demanded a division. Speaker NP Prajapati accepted the demand Both parties were asked to vote The shocker came in the tally – Congress has got 122 votes, including two BJP MLAs.
Mediapersons surrounded Bhargava the moment he stepped out He was saying that it is hardly matters if BJP MLAs voted for Congress as BJP already supported the bill, when Tripathi and Kol walked into a chamber with CM Nath to meet the media and announce their support for Congress.
Tripathi said: “BJP never gives any respect to those who join it from other parties.” BJP is a party of bogus assurances. It is time for the country’s wapsi. ” Congress parried a question on whether the two BJP MLAs have switched over. “Both of them supported Congress in the House. This is enough to confirm that they are with Congress,” PC Sharma said. BJP did not say if it will take action against the MLAs
