New Delhi: The fate of seven rebel BJP MLAs of Jammu and Kashmir is still undecided with the party failing to come to a final decision in its last meeting. Albeit the party is confident of ousting the seven suspended MLAs from the party as well as the state Legislature, it failed to evolve a consensus on the same in its meeting here on Friday.

The party’s Central Disciplinary Committee has decided to meet once more before taking the final decision.

Significantly, head of the Disciplinary Committee and state in-charge Omprakash Kohli was not present in the meeting following the allegation made against him by the suspended MLAs in reply to the showcause notice.

The meeting was attended by Mridula Sinha, Keshrinath Tripathi, O Rajagopal and Balram Das Tandon.

Since the suspended BJP MLA, Bharat Bhushan, has approached the court, the party is finding it difficult to take a tough stand against the rebels.

After discussing in details all the judicial and political aspects of the decision to be taken, the Committee had a talk with the state party in-charge Kohli.

Giving an opportunity to the rebel MLAs to put forward their stand, the BJP high command had invited all the 11 state legislators to the party meeting but the seven suspended MLAs did not turn up.

Following this, the BJP has made up its mind to remove all the seven legislators from the organisation. The party also wants to ensure that the MLAs are even dismissed from the membership of legislative assembly.
