"Narendra Singh and Samrat Chaudhary, the two JD(U) MLCs, have been found guilty of violation of anti-defection law and disqualified as under 10th schedule of the Constitution", said Singh.
    
The two lawmakers with their advocates were present for final hearing on petitions, he said.

Reacting to annulment of his membership of the legislative council, Samrat Chaudhary kept mum on the merit of the order against him, but sarcastically thanked the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for his disqualification.
    
It may be mentioned that Sanjay Kumar Singh alias Sanjay Gandhi, the JD(U) Chief Whip in the Legislative Council, had petitioned the Chairman of the Upper House for disqualification of five rebel party MLCs on charge of their involvement in anti-party activities during Assembly polls.
    
While three rebel JD(U) MLCs have been disqualified, Manzar Alam has resigned from the Upper House even as the hearing on disqualification petition of Shiv Prasanna Yadav was underway with the rebel MLC undergoing treatment for unspecified illness at a hospital in New Delhi.
