Tripura Speaker Serves Notice To MLA Asish Das Under Anti-Defection Law

Tripura Assembly Speaker Ratan Chakraborty has served a notice on BJP MLA from Surma, Asish Das, who recently joined the TMC, asking why action should not be taken against Das under the anti-defection law.

As per reports, the notice was issued to Das on October 28 and a reply sought within seven days.

“If the reply does not come within the stipulated time then he would be asked to appear physically, and action might also be initiated against him,” the speaker told PTI.

Das, during his visit to Kolkata in October, had slammed Chief Minister Biplab Deb over his style of functioning and criticised the activities of the ruling BJP.

The chief whip of Tripura assembly, Kalyani Roy, on October 27, had written to the speaker of the assembly demanding disqualification of Das as MLA for “anti-party activities”.

Das joined the TMC on October 31, however, did not resign as an MLA of the saffron party.
