Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Government may soon call a special session of the Assembly to restore the membership of two Congress MLAs, who were disqualified for their unruly behaviour in the House last week.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan met Assembly Speaker Ishwardas Rohani at his residence here this morning in presence of Parliamentary Affairs Minister Narottam Mishra and Industry Minister Kailash Vijaywargiya to work out modalities for calling a special session, official sources said.

Besides discussing the issue of restoring membership of the MLAs, Choudhary Rakesh Singh Chaturvedi and Kalpana Parulekar, they also discussed a letter given by Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh on the matter and reply to be filed in the High Court over the disqualification, they said.

The two Opposition legislators have moved the Madhya Pradesh HC challenging termination of their membership.

The Speaker is likely to meet Governor Ram Naresh Yadav on Tuesday with a request to convene the special session.

Talking to reporters later, Chouhan said his meeting with the Speaker's residence was a courtesy call, but the issue of disqualification was also discussed and it was being examined by legal experts.

Depending on their opinion further action would be taken in this regard, the Chief Minister said.

The Speaker said informal discussions on the issue were going and by on Tuesday they might take some concrete decision.

Mishra said Rohani would meet the Governor on Tuesday to discuss the issue after which a date for the session would be decided.

Meanwhile, Assembly Deputy Speaker Harvansh Singh said there is nothing wrong if the two MLAs tender an apology for their unruly behaviour with the Chair on July 18.
